LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 967, as amended, Yee. Public postsecondary education: executive officer compensation.
Existing law establishes the University of California, which is administered by the Regents of the University of California, the California State University, which is administered by the Trustees of the California State University, and the California Community Colleges, which is administered by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law authorizes the regents, the trustees, and the board to employ officers and other employees.
This bill would prohibit the trustees from, and request the regents to refrain from, increasing the monetary compensation, as defined, of, or approving a monetary bonus for, any executive officer, as defined, of the university within 2 years of a fiscal year in which the mandatory systemwide fees of the university are increased from the immediately preceding fiscal year, or in which the General Fund appropriation to the university in the annual Budget Act is less than, or equal to, the General Fund appropriation to the university in the annual Budget Act for the immediately preceding fiscal year. The bill would prohibit the trustees from, and request the regents to refrain from, providing monetary compensation to an incoming executive officer that exceeds 105% of the monetary compensation of the immediately preceding executive officer of the same classification that the incoming executive officer is replacing. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2023.
