Capitol News: Broad-based Coalition Comes Together to Lobby Against Higher Ed Privatization Bill

More than 30 CTA members from community colleges, CSU, UC and students came together to urge lawmakers to vote against CTA-opposed SB 520. This bill, a measure by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), would divert education dollars to private contractors to provide online lower-division courses, instead of college faculty.

Bill opponents wanted to lobby members of the Assembly before they left for summer break because the bill may be heard in the Assembly as soon as lawmakers return.
