Dear Colleagues,

 

Good morning. Governor Jerry Brown just released the May Revision to his proposed 2014-15 State Budget, and the spending plan builds on the solid budget proposal for community colleges released in January.

 

 Here are the major community college items, with changes from January identified in yellow:

Economic and Workforce Development     $50,000 to increase student success in career-technical programs
Telecommunications and Technology     $1,400  

 

The revised budget makes technical adjustments for property tax (+17.7m general fund) and student fee revenues (+24.7m general fund), and continues the plan to pay off all remaining apportionment deferrals. Student fees would remain at $46 per credit unit. The summary also proposes to increase the enhanced noncredit funding rate to the credit rate beginning in 2015-16, a significant win for our advocacy.

We'll continue to dive into the details as they become available and will share more shortly.

Sincerely,

Scott Lay
