From the SF Chronicle:
Students in California's public colleges and universities, who have seen their tuition and fees rise continuously, could see some relief as early as this fall under bills passed in each house of the Legislature on Wednesday. Lawmakers in the Assembly and Senate approved separate measures that would provide a generous tuition break for middle-class students at the University of California and California State University, and create an online library to reduce the costs of college textbooks.... College students who have watched their bills soar said Wednesday's developments were exciting changes and that their efforts to push lawmakers to give financial relief to students had paid off. "With these bills being considered and having a pretty good chance of passing it really means that Sacramento has listened to students," said Patrick Manh Le, a fourth-year [international studies] student at UC Irvine and undergraduate chairman for the UC Student Association.
