Anti-tax group says CSU letter is illegal


U-T San Diego/The Associated Press — A letter being sent to California State University applicants, including Cal State San SanDiego_U-T_logoBernardino applicants, that details the effect on university finances if an upcoming ballot measure fails is illegal, an anti-tax group said.

The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association charges that the letter, which warns that enrollment capacity will drop if Proposition 30 fails, amounts to using government resources for a political campaign.

CSU spokeswoman Claudia Keith denied that the letter, which is to be sent to applicants Oct. 1, is political.

The wire service article was published by various online news sites beginning on Sept. 15, 2012.
