The AP is reporting that new California Governor Jerry Brown has proposed a budget that would cut $1.4 billion from the state's higher education funding. Publishers doing business with universities and libraries in the state should take notice: the new budget would cut $500 million from UC and CSU systems -- each -- and another $400m from the state's community colleges. As published in Bloomberg, the AP article states that, in addition to tuition hikes, the state campuses are preparing for a litany of other "draconian cost-cutting measures."
