"The passage of Proposition 30 represents an opportunity for California and its political leadership to put public higher education back on a pathway toward fiscal stability. This is an opportunity of great importance, not only to the University of California and other higher education segments, but also to the state as a whole, and we cannot afford to let it slip away."
Sherry Lansing, University of California chairman of the Board of Regents, made the following statement today (Nov. 7) about the approval of Proposition 30 by California voters:
"I am thrilled that California voters have passed Proposition 30. This victory will certainly help us in our battle to restore fiscal stability to the University of California.
"I am deeply grateful to all who advocated for Proposition 30, especially the students who worked so incredibly hard to get out the vote, and the many faculty members and alumni who argued so eloquently for its passage.
"We will remain steadfast in our determination to preserve the quality, access and public service that have made the University of California an indispensable resource for the entire state."
