Whew! Community College fee waivers are safe...for now.

Here's the full story:

This is cold comfort for those who are not in the lowest of low-income categories, but that's where I am at present. The merely middle class, who have to pay out of pocket for their fees, will have to pay $26 per unit, up from $18. That's not good.

Some of the other ramifications of the Schwartzenegger "Terminator 2004" budget are pretty scary. The handicapped and working-poor who rely on elements of MediCal are going to be stuck it to pretty fierce, and lots of kids who would have qualified for "Healthy Families" will not. That's pretty piss-poor priorities.
