Great Valley Center President Carol Whiteside thinks Governor Schwarzenegger’s budget is a good one. She says it’s designed to promote jobs in the region. WHITESIDE :10—In the Valley where we desperately need jobs if the financial structure, the tax structure, the regulatory structure doesn’t encourage people who create jobs to stay here, then we’re doomed. U-C Merced has been allocated about 75 percent of the eighteen million dollars in supplemental funds it asked for, but Spokeswoman Ana Nelson Shaw says that won’t impact the school’s plan to open the doors to undergraduates this fall. SHAW :07—We had requested a little more than what the Governor proposed for us, but we’ll be able to make it work. Some social service agencies in the Valley say the budget doesn’t provide enough money for the needy. Bob Hensley KXJZ News.
