The California State University program, which includes several campuses around the Los Angeles area, will lose $31.3 million in funding in the latest of Sacramento budget cuts. "In response, we made it clear that in order to meet our mission-critical functions, this would have to be a one-time reduction, and not affect our base general fund budget going forward," Charles B. Reed, CSU Chancellor, wrote in a letter to employees. The cuts are from the latest budget approval last month and does not include a possible new budget that could be set later this month after news that California has a worse deficit--$10 billion--than the state anticipated. Educators statewide have been told that they should prepare for $2 to $4 billion in cuts.
