Under a rule proposed Thursday, members of the UC Board of Regents and their relatives will be required to disclose their real estate holdings on or near sites of finalists to become a UC campus. Regent Roy Brophy, who authored the proposal, said it is aimed at assuring that the site-selection process is "above reproach." The full board is expected to approve the rule today. It would become effective when the list of sites for a new campus narrows to eight to 10.
