CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 13


Introduced by Senator Galgiani

May 01, 2017


A resolution to propose to the people of the State of California an amendment to the Constitution of the State, by adding Section 10 to Article IX thereof, relating to the University of California.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SCA 13, as introduced, Galgiani. University of California.
Existing provisions of the California Constitution provide that the University of California constitutes a public trust, administered by the Regents of the University of California, a corporation in the form of a board, with full powers of organization and government, subject to legislative control only for specified purposes. These provisions give that corporation all the powers necessary or convenient for the effective administration of its trust.
This measure, during any year in which the university provides more than 600 managerial employees with annual salaries higher than the Governor’s, would prohibit the university from increasing systemwide student tuition and fees or from entering into a new, or renewing an existing, services contract with a for-profit company paying substandard wages, as defined, to its nonprofessional workers.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

Resolved by the Senate, the Assembly concurring, That the Legislature of the State of California at its 2017–18 Regular Session commencing on the fifth day of December 2016, two-thirds of the membership of each house concurring, hereby proposes to the people of the State of California that the Constitution of the State be amended as follows:

 That Section 10 is added to Article IX thereof, to read:

SEC. 10.

(1) Increase systemwide student tuition and fees.
(2) Enter into a new, or renew an existing, services contract with a for-profit company paying substandard wages to its nonprofessional workers.
(b) For purposes of this section, a for-profit company pays substandard wages when the average annual compensation paid to its nonprofessional workers is lower than the average annual compensation paid to University of California nonprofessional workers to perform comparable service work at the same location.
(c) The State Personnel Board shall adopt regulations to implement this section.
