  3. Proposed constitutional amendment could strip UC of its independenceRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Dec 5 | Santa Cruz Sentinel

    Amid widespread fury over tuition-hike threats, two state senators are attempting to strip the University of California of the constitutional independence from the Legislature it has enjoyed since 1878. Embraced by some, dismissed as a nuclear option by others, a constitutional amendment introduced late this week would - if passed by two-thirds of the Assembly and Senate and approved by voters in 2016 - give the Legislature unprecedented control over UC, likely making it subject to the same laws and oversight as California State University and the state's community colleges.

Over the shouts of demonstrators and the opposition of Gov. Jerry Brown, the UC Board of Regents voted 14-7 to approve tuition increases of as much as 5 percent in each of the next five years unless the state devotes more money to the 10-campus system.

Senate Bill 967, signed into law Sunday by Gov.
