Middle Class Scholarship Bill Passes Key Assembly Hurdle

A bill to create a new scholarship for middle class students at California public colleges and universities passed a key hurdle at the State Capitol. The measure would slash tuition costs of U.C. and C.S.U. students by using money from closing a corporate tax loophole. Lawmakers are considering other budget proposals that would cut funding for higher education and the Cal-Grants scholarship program. Christopher Martinez reports.
