Higher education leaders in California on Saturday announced the release of $537 million in federal stimulus funds for the state's public colleges and universities, the Los Angeles Times reported. The funds come from the state's $3.1 billion allocation of the federal stimulus bill. Few details have been released regarding how the state's higher education systems will use the funds, and lawmakers and educators alike stressed that there wasn't enough money to make up for all of the currently planned cuts. Said State Sen. Gloria Romero: "You can almost compare this to a blood transfusion to a very sickly patient. But this is triage and only addresses a portion of the problems we face."
