CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / LONG BEACH

Cal State seeks $884 million

November 18, 2009|Carla Rivera

A California State University finance committee Tuesday approved a 2010-11 budget that seeks $884 million in state support to bolster a flagging system that is looking to recover from severe funding shortfalls.

The plan requests $305 million to restore one-time cuts imposed in 2009-10; $283 million to restore money for collective bargaining agreements not funded in 2008-09 and 2009-10; and $296 million for mandatory cost and compensation increases and improvements in student services and instruction.

The budget plan would increase Cal State's General Fund support from $2.3 million to $3.2 million.

State support for the 23-campus college system has been slashed $625 million over the last two years, resulting in staff and faculty furloughs, reduced enrollment and student fee increases.

The full Board of Trustees is expected to approve the budget today.
