LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1561, as amended, Roger Hernández. California State University and University of California: compensation.
Existing law establishes the California State University under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, and the University of California under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, as 2 of the segments of public postsecondary education in the state.
This bill would prohibit the trustees from entering into or renewing, and would request the regents not to enter into or renew, a contract that provides for a compensation increase, as defined, for any an administrator, as defined, using state moneys or moneys from tuition or fees in a fiscal year in which the amount of General Fund moneys appropriated to the respective segment in the annual Budget Act for the current fiscal year is less than the amount of moneys appropriated to that segment in the annual Budget Act for the immediately preceding fiscal year, or if mandatory systemwide resident tuition or fees have been increased in the same fiscal year.
This bill would prohibit the trustees from increasing, and would request the regents not to increase, the compensation of an administrator by more than 10% relative to the immediately preceding compensation for that position. Subsequent to this increase, the bill would require, and request, that compensation to only be increased annually by the percentage of inflation, as specified.

The bill would prohibit California State University administrators from participating, and would request University of California administrators not to participate, in specified activities.
