The University of California Board of Regents is set to vote Wednesday on a plan to raise tuition by as much as 5 percent every year for the next five years. The proposal is angering students, and has put UC President Janet Napolitano at odds with Gov. Jerry Brown, who is resisting the increase and urging the UC to reduce spending instead.
