BERKELEY, California- The success or failure of Proposition 30 is a key determinant of the future of public higher education in the state of California. Although it will temporarily increase taxes, its passage will prevent triggered cuts that are focused primarily on universities and public schools. Should Prop 30 be rejected, the budget includes a backup plan that requires “trigger cuts” that will result in a $250 million cut to the University of California and California State University systems. Opponents of Proposition 30 have stated that this is not a long-term solution and that voters should look towards legislation that furthers fiscal sustainability.
