Lawmakers Approve Audit of UC Medical Centers’ Finances
Last week, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee voted unanimously to approve an audit of staffing levels and finances at University of California medical centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The audit -- requested by Assembly member Adam Gray (D-Merced) comes in response to a campaign by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299. UC has asked lawmakers for $15 million to build a sixth medical school in Riverside, but the unions argue that the medical centers are "highly profitable" and that UC can cover the costs on its own.
