UC’s rising tuition sparks bill to end college system’s autonomy By Nanette Asimov, San Francisco Chronicle

Angered by rising tuition and fat executive pay at the University of California, a bipartisan pair of state senators introduced a bill Thursday to wrest control of decision-making at UC and end its 166 years of autonomy. The constitutional amendment, SA1, could be decided by California voters in 2016, but would first need to win two-thirds approval in both the state Senate and the Assembly — a high bar. No signature from the governor is needed. http://www.sfgate.com/education/article/State-senators-propose-wresting-control-of-UC-5936041.php
