UC Berkeley can enroll thousands more students as government signs new legislation

The University of California, Berkeley will no longer have to cut student admissions for the fall after lawmakers swiftly passed a bill seeking to undo the effects of a local lawsuit.

“I am grateful to the Legislature for acting quickly on this critical issue – it sends a clear signal that California will not let lawsuits get in the way of the education and dreams of thousands of students, our future leaders and innovators,” Newsom said. said in a statement, noting that the lawsuit and court orders would have “disproportionately impacted students from disadvantaged or underrepresented backgrounds.”

In recent months, a series of court rulings have favored the local group Save Berkeley’s Neighborhoods, which continued school about its expansion plans, arguing that enrolling more students at UC Berkeley would negatively impact local housing prices and other environmental issues.
