Calif. Lawmakers Reject Governor's Adult Ed Proposal

Right now, adult education programs are split between two worlds.  Some are run by community colleges; others by K-through-12 school districts.  The governor wants to put them all under the community college system - without reducing their funding.  But on Tuesday, an Assembly budget subcommittee rejected that proposal.

"There's some very successful programs being run by community colleges, and there are also very successful programs being run by K-12 programs.  So really, I think the conclusion was, we don't need to move it in order to improve it," says Asm. Susan Bonilla (D-Concord), who chairs the subcommittee.

The governor's Department of Finance says it still believes the proposal makes sense.  It plans to keep working with lawmakers as the budget process continues over the next few months.
