Senator Janet Nguyen's Statement on the State Auditor's report on the University of California

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Today the California State Auditor announced that the University of California’s (UC) headquarters hid $175 million from the public while at the same time, UC President Napolitano was demanding more state funds and higher tuition from students.

The brazen lack of transparency demonstrated by the UC System is why I introduced my legislation Senate Bill 236, which would have frozen tuition for all in-state students for four years. The bureaucrats and leadership of the UC system need to be held to account for how it spends its money before they burden our students with higher fees and tuitions.
