UCLA Prepares for the Budget Axe

Hosted by

Tuition at UC campuses is now almost $12,000 a year and that could double if voters don't give Governor Brown the tax increases he's asked for. Are Republican legislators turning their backs on the institutions that got them where they are? Are increasing numbers of foreign students accepted instead of Californians because they have to pay more? We talk with the Chancellor at UCLA, and hear from the President pro Tem of the State Senate, who wants to give cities, counties and school districts the power to raise taxes on their own. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Afghanistan and Pakistan after Osama.
