California State University is considering a $1 billion contingency plan of cuts that would increase tuition up to 32 percent and shut down enrollment for thousands of students. There are proposed budget cuts at all 23 Cal State University campuses statewide on April 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. CSU has already taken action to address an initial $500 million in cuts, including reduced enrollment, increased tuition and staff eliminations. Now universities have to prepare for double the cuts because of the state's failure, so far, to extend state taxes that are set to expire June 30.
