“The announcement today acknowledges the critical need to develop and sustain a well-educated California citizenry to fuel California’s economy today and in the decades ahead.  It is encouraging that the California State Senate Democratic Caucus has committed to stand with public higher education and especially the California State University in the new legislative session.

The California State University looks forward to continuing the work with Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins and Governor Jerry Brown to shape a budget that provides educational opportunity, quality and success for all students.”
