Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

University of California regents have rescheduled the meeting that was canceled this week by threats of violence. They are now planning to meet on Monday, Nov. 28.

UC's governing board was never scheduled to vote on a tuition increase at the November meeting, though some groups planning protests distributed publicity material saying it was. Regents canceled the meeting scheduled for Wednesday in San Francisco, citing "credible intelligence" that planned protests could result in violence and vandalism.

The newly scheduled meeting will take place at four campuses -- in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Davis and Merced -- that will be connected by teleconference. Regents have expanded the time available for public comment, from 20 minutes to one hour. Members of the public can attend the meeting at any of the four locations.

The board is scheduled to discuss several financial matters, including its request to the state for a 2012-13 budget of $2.8 billion.
