California IN BRIEF : PARLIER : Campus Site Choice May Be Delayed

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

State budget woes may translate into a delay for selecting--and opening--the new University of California campus site in the San Joaquin Valley, UC officials say. The budget crisis could push the timetable for selecting a new campus site back six months to a year, UC Vice President William Baker said. Additionally, the proposed 1998 opening date could be delayed. “The state is in the midst of a budget crisis, and when the state is having a budget crisis, UC is having a budget crisis,” Baker told members of the UC Citizen’s Advisory Council. “There will be a 10th campus and it will be in the (San Joaquin) Valley,” he said. “It’s a question of when.”
