Brown said he wants more transparency and financial reporting from the school system. He also criticized administrators' salaries as being too high.
“I put the $50 million (the amount he is withholding) in there to hold their feet to the fire,” Brown said.
A state audit found that under university system President Janet Napolitano, former Department of Homeland Security chief, UC administrators hid $175 million from the public while increasing tuition and asking the state for more money.
The UC Board of Regents in January voted to increase in-state tuition and fees by $336 next academic year. Some lawmakers called for a reversal of the tuition hike in the wake of the audit.
