The University of California Board of Regents has been in the spotlight for lavish spending– a reality hard to swallow for students bearing the brunt of tuition hikes.

The San Francisco Chronicle has been looking hard at the story. Their recent coverage details the cost of multiple luxury hotel dinners that ranged in the neighborhood of $8,000 - $18,000 for around two dozen people. 

Now, the Board has responded by saying they're going to reverse course and foot the bill for dinners themselves. 

For more, Take Two's A Martinez spoke with San Francisco Chronicle reporter Melody Gutierrez.
