CSU Board Cancels Meeting Over Safety Concerns
LONG BEACH (AP) — The California State University board is canceling a committee meeting because of safety concerns.
The CSU Board of Trustees said Wednesday it is scrapping a meeting of the Special Committee on Presidential Selection and Compensation, which was scheduled to be held Monday in Long Beach.
The committee will now meet at the board’s scheduled Jan. 24-25 meeting.
CSU Board Chair Herbert Carter says the board based its decision on the experience of its Nov. 16 meeting when protesters clashed with police, shattering a glass door. He says the building entrance at CSU headquarters is still being repaired.
The University of California Board of Regents postponed its mid-November meeting after law enforcement warned that protests could turn violent. The regents held a rescheduled meeting Monday at four campuses connected by teleconference.
