Morning Scoop: Governor relents, water deal progress, upwardly mobile tuitions

October 12, 2009 |  9:37 am


A gray good morning from the City Desk, where we're waiting for the first raindrops to fall. Some California stories from today's paper to get your work week started right:

It was only a threat. The governor started signing bills Sunday without a water deal. He had said he might veto them all if a deal wasn't reached. As for that water deal, legislators say they're edging closer.

What if money didn't matter? Sacramento columnist George Skelton takes a look at Tom Campbell, a GOP candidate for governor who has lots of experience but not the deep coffers of his rivals.

They'll make good money one day and their professors have big salaries. That's the argument behind a UC proposal to charge undergraduates in business and engineering more tuition than their classmates.

We're keeping an eye on the weather and any problems on charred hillsides. We'll bring you other news as we get it. Drop me a line at nita.lelyveld@latimes.com if you see something you think we should be covering.
