Uc Won’t Lose Any Major Funding

Clinton administration officials backed away Monday from threatening the University of California with a loss of its federal funds, saying they are only reviewing several small education programs that require the use of affirmative action.

The nine-campus UC system receives about $4.6 billion a year in federal funding, $2.1 billion of which supports the three national laboratories that UC runs for the U.S. Department of Energy.

University officials also discounted the possibility they would lose substantial funding and noted that they are in compliance with federal civil rights laws.
