California State University trustees on Wednesday approved a 9% tuition increase after a raucous session in which police used pepper spray and batons to clear protesters who had disrupted the meeting in Long Beach. The board voted 9 to 6 to raise tuition by about $500 for fall 2012, bringing the annual education charges for undergraduates to $5,970, not including campus-based fees that average $1,047. But the meeting descended into chaos when members of the audience began chanting "we are the 99%," and demanding that trustees sign a pledge to force financial institutions to pay more taxes to fund higher education.

A House panel is preparing to accuse Rep. Maxine Waters of at least one ethics violation in her efforts to help a bank with ties to her husband, and the longtime Los Angeles Democrat plans to fight the charges in a House trial, according to a source familiar with the case. The allegations were presented Friday to Waters, the source said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is confidential. Waters, an outspoken legislator who has held elective office in Sacramento or Washington for more than three decades, could not be reached Friday night.

The head of the House tax-writing committee admitted that he owes about $5,000 to the Internal Revenue Service for failing to report income. Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), 78, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, insisted he had made innocent errors of omission, not acts of deliberate deception or greed. The errors, he said, would be corrected in amended filings to the IRS and Congress.

Issues include Rangel's failure to report $75,000 in rental income and his use of a rent-controlled apartment as a campaign office. Rangel, 78, denies intentional wrongdoing.
