What's at stake with Prop. 30?

Julie Small/KPCC

Gov. Jerry Brown launches the Prop 30 media campaign.

Prop. 30 isn't getting a lot of play on the airwaves. But it's sure getting a lot of attention in the offices of California's higher education officials.

California's university system could lose half a billion dollars in state funding if Prop. 30 does not pass. The UC system is facing a cut of $375 million. As a result, the regents have brainstormed what actions they might take if voters don't approve the initiative. Prop. 30 is one of eleven statewide propositions that will be on the ballot in November.

Guest:

Dan Dooley, the UC senior vice president for external relations.
