"This $149 million reduction is unexpected and even larger than the mid-year trigger cut that the community college system has already endured. This will result in colleges further reducing course
sections, additional borrowing and staff reductions. The new 2.75 percent budget decrease is
effectively doubled because colleges only have a half year to try to find savings."
- Dr. Jack Scott, California Community College Chancellor
