Jerry Brown references a chart showing the increase in school funding in the past four years as he unveiled his proposed 2015-16 state budget plan at a Capitol news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Friday, Jan. 9, 2015. Brown's record $113 billion state spending plan provides $120 million boost to the University of California system but didn't provide as much funding as the 10-campus system wanted because Brown said California's budget is precariously balanced.
