very excited to be starting this program and we appreciate your support thank you thank you n next speaker please fellow board members administration in
guess my name is anything going I’m a
classified employees long time resident Long Beach I want to
congratulate the district on both the board docs and the renovate the completing the
renovation AA and BB building the PCC campus I’m very proud of what that building
represents and I know it will help motivate the students that 10 been awhile since I’ve been up
there to address the board and I I know you’re all excited about that
last week I attended a brown bag event with the vice president and Lacey
expressed my concern about the current ten-month classified
employees that were reduced to 12 from twelve
months two and a half years ago because I’ve lack of work or lack of
funds but as it turns out some classified consistently being asked to work LTTE’s or limited term employees during the two
months that they are supposedly not needed I
was told that the district is looking into this issue and reports
are being run to help clarify the need and this is really pretty and speaking
today because I want to make sure that the budget Advisory Committee managers in Dean’s who helped make these
decisions understand how inappropriate an unfair it feels to these classified that are asked to come in and tamper
basically their own position it’s unfair because before the reduction
they would be paid for holidays in January in July and if they got sick
they would still have income because it’s part of my benefits package
its part in the security that comes with the 12-month job but they were originally buyer for and
many of these positions are somewhat special you won’t be able to find a temp agency that import these employees specializing
chemistry microbiology sheet metal electable in
trades their specific knowledge to keep the
libraries and successors functioning for students I would like to read a couple boat is
classified since I was reduced from 12 months 10
months due to lack of work this will be the third time I’ve been
brought back as an LT and the next one is comes from someone who’s worked four
times so I would like to say that I’m thankful that I’ve been able to get the time in
so I don’t lose my house since I can’t get unemployment benefits
it’s time to treat these classified with respect and give them back some stability and
security they are the human capital that helps Long Beach City College see
so whatever pops so whenever possible and your crunching the numbers and going
over the budget this spring trying to decide where did it goes please consider your LBCC family and make restoration a priority thank
you thank you you know the speakers at this time 12

January governor’s budget update for 2015 2016 shivered in prison Oakley yes thank you
for president kellogg I’m going to turn this over to vice
president cable as well but just to make a few introductory comments
I am we’re we are monitoring closely the governors budget proposal had the
opportunity to discuss it with several members of Department of Finance and I I think we’re fortunate that prop 98 Eric to use to benefit from the revenues
that are coming in from both a.m. tax receipts as well as proposition 30 and as the governor warned we must be prepared
for an environment where prop 30 goes away there is no commitment as yet by either
the governor or the legislature to go back out to the voters to extend published 30 so that is something
that a.m. I know from the governor from the
Department of Finance in from Chancellor Harris save reached out to all the districts to
remind us now and we will continue to work with are college planning process to ensure that
we take that into consideration so with that I’ll turn it over to Vice President
gable this is an emotional I to myself there’s
no motion required naked president Oakley so the governor’s budget was released on
january 9th 2015 it was a balanced budget and the total revenues for the state
113.3 eight billion dollars her the book a the revenues coming into
the state as you can see here from personal income taxes which represents
about 66 percent the total revenues and in the sales and
use tax which represents about 22 percent the
revenue the other sources revenue that come into
the state or corporate taxes insurance taxes and then just and gamit have other taxes that come in as well on the
expenditure side the budget represented a hundred 13.29 eight billion dollars K 12 in higher
education encompass 54 percent the total expenditures K-twelve representing 42 percent that
about forty seven billion dollars in higher education is 12 percent with about fourteen
billion dollars the other large categories within the
total expenditures on the state is corrections Human Services health and
the natural resources so kinda breaking down the governor’s
budget how it relates to the community college community colleges there were seven
point eight billion dollars in additional funds provided to key 14
education and the reason that we focus on key 14
education is because the community college system
is part of proposition 98 it was passed back in 1998 to wear along with the key 12 system and the
community college system we’re guaranteed about forty percent the
revenues that come into the states that’s kinda way we really do focus on that key 14 peace
when it comes to this state budget breaking it down further specific to community colleges that seven-point
eight billion dollars in additional revenue seven billion goes to k12 in about a hundred eleven million
dollars is coming to the community college system was proposed to come to the community
college system for the community college system it’s eliminating ninety four and a half
million dollars in cash deferrals which means for Long Beach it’s about
two million dollars have cash that were actually we will
receive in the fiscal year that were supposed to receive it cash
deferral on the state’s been doing this for quite some time I’m is where they don’t pay us all the
cash that were owed until the next fiscal year so
during the recession there is hi and fiscal year 11/12 for the state deferred $961 million
dollars a community college apportionment and for us here at Long Beach I was
about twenty two million dollars that we didn’t receive a net fiscal year and instead it was deferred until the
next fiscal year which caused us to enter into short term financing now that these deferrals are coming down
we no longer have the need to enter in the short term financing so it is saving
us money so that that is a good thing the next item with the state budget is
proposition 39 this was legislation that was passed about two
years ago and this is for energy efficiency its attacks that is placed on
corporations and the money goes again to K-twelve community colleges in some to
higher education so there’s about 30 9.6 million that is
planned for the 15-16 year and that’s about a 20 percent
reduction of received in the current fiscal year
additionally the governor is proposing cola so 1.58 percent colour ninety 2.4
million dollars statewide another this is a new
allocation 125 million dollar base allocation adjustment and the reason that the state and the
governor has proposed this is praying merely because %uh the sisters and purrs
increases that have been imposed on the employers
throughout the state and so what the governor advises that
this 125 million dollar base allocation adjustment be used for are exactly as we said here increased
operating expenses in the areas and facilities retirement
benefits that’s for the person stirs commanders
on the retirement benefits professional development governing
part-time to full-time faculty and then other general expenses just to
give you an idea and the sisters and purrs in the 15-16
fiscal year this stirs read is going to be 10.73
percent it’s currently eight-point 8 8 percent so thats you know over a hundred
thousand dollar increase for Long Beach alone just under stirs
employer costs
