Promenading on the Fine Line

Let us mark history.

Prop. 30 proposes temporary tax increases for Californians that are estimated to raise up to $8 billion in additional annual state revenue. According to an analysis of Prop. 30 by the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office, if the measure is rejected, $6 billion would be cut from the state budget, largely targeting schools and community colleges, the UC and the CSU.
It is estimated that the university would lose $250 million this year and that UC Berkeley would incur a $50 million budget cut, meaning students would likely face a midyear tuition increase of up to 20 percent.
Multiple students groups were present in support of SB 11 at the senate meeting Wednesday, including the Asian Pacific Islander Recruitment and Retention Center group REACH and the Cal Berkeley Democrats.

I'm proud to be working with REACH! and glad to know the awesomest people in there. I'm really really proud that we're making such a big effect not only for our school and its students, but across the entire UC/CSU system.
REACH! is always forever in my heart. ♥
