On Tuesday’s CSU Board of Trustees Finance Committee budget update

 

EDITORS: The California State University Board of Trustees Finance Committee will discuss options and alternatives to address the possibility of a mid-year “trigger cut” of $250 million to the system, if Gov. Brown’s tax initiative is voted down in November.

 

However, no vote is anticipated on budget proposals until September. President Welty will attend the committee and trustees meetings Tuesday, July 17, in Long Beach and will be available to local media Wednesday morning to discuss potential impacts at Fresno State.

 

For today, President Welty offers this comment:

 

“If the mid-year ‘trigger cut’ of $250 million becomes reality, the CSU board faces some very difficult choices. Unfortunately, the alternatives will involve shared pain for everyone.

FRESNO, Calif. - Former Fresno State softball standout Laura Berg (1998), and the 2004 U.S. Olympic Softball Team were inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame for the Class of 2012.

The 2004 U.S. Olympic Women's Softball Team coined the "Real Dream Team" on the cover of "Sports Illustrated," will go down as one of the most dominant teams in Olympic history. With a perfect 9-0 record and a string of eight consecutive shutouts, this team lived up to the hype.
