California State University Issues Statement on
Impending Budget Deadline
The following statement can be attributed to
Chancellor Charles B. Reed, California State University
(562) 951- 4800
(June 24, 2011) - “The state of California is at a crossroads. Governor Brown’s proposed budget, including a temporary tax bridge to an election at which Californians can decide the kind of state we will be in the future, is vital to the future of the California State University and present and future students. Time is short. I urge the members of the legislature, regardless of party, to reach agreement with the governor, whose plan is the only way forward to solve the state’s fiscal crisis and protect higher education from devastating further cuts.”
