GLENDALE — Glendale Community College students receiving state financial aid may be in a bind when fall courses start next month if officials are forced to continue making grant payments using IOUs, administrators said. State Controller John Chiang, in response to the California’s dire cash shortage, began issuing IOUs this month in lieu of $3.36 billion of July payments to public programs, state vendors, small businesses and taxpayers. Chiang was forced to pull the trigger on IOUs after lawmakers failed to come to terms on a budget solution that would have closed the state’s growing deficit, which is now projected to balloon to $26 billion.

The Dream Act, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, is “a step in the right direction” for immigration activists. But it is another slap in the face for American citizens and legal residents (“Students look to federal Dream Act,” Oct. 16). It's bad enough that California taxpayers spend at least $10 billion a year (or $13 billion, if you believe the latest report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform) on education, housing and medical care for illegal immigrants. It's worse that undocumented students (who receive some or all these public services before they turn 18)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Glendale Community College officials said this week that cash reserves can last only a few more months as they, along with the entire community college system, continue to languish under the ongoing state budget stalemate. Of all the systems tethered to state funding, community colleges are among the most vulnerable to protracted budget fights since nearly all of their funding comes from annual state disbursements. Without the payments, colleges have no recourse other than to dip into reserves or borrow money to cover operating expenses.
