500 million here

A billion there--pretty soon it adds up.  Huge cuts in California. From the L.A. Times.

Facing an 18% cut in state funding, Cal State plans to reduce enrollment by 10,000, cut $11 million from the chancellor's office and shrink campus funding by $281 million. No tuition hikes are planned, chancellor says.

California State University plans to enroll 10,000 fewer students next year, slash spending in the chancellor's office and reduce faculty and staff to contend with a proposed $500-million cut in state funding, officials said Tuesday.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees in Long Beach, Cal State administrators outlined a series of actions that will probably mean fewer instructors and classes and more crowded classrooms across the system's 23 campuses.

"We're facing potentially the worst financial situation Cal State has ever faced," trustee William Hauck said, noting that the predicament will get worse if tax extensions proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown are not approved by voters. In that case, Cal State could face a $1-billion state funding reduction.
