SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown is set to make his first appearance at a University of California board meeting where he's expected to urge UC officials to control costs and avoid raising tuition.
Brown is expected to attend the UC Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco on Wednesday, a day after university officials heeded his request to delay a vote on raising fees for several professional degree programs.
The governor attended Tuesday's meeting of the California State University Board of Trustees, which also agreed to postpone a vote on three new fees at Brown's request.
Brown told reporters Tuesday that the UC and CSU systems must keep a lid on costs and tuition a week after voters approved Proposition 30, which temporarily raises taxes to fund for K-12 schools and colleges.
