The board of trustees of the California State University had a small riot on their hands yesterday, as they approved a 9-percent rate hike -- the third rate increase in a year. The rate hike will kick in if the system doesn't receive more money in next year's state budget. But the possibility of more money for education went down dramatically yesterday, with a grim prediction on an increasing state deficit and more budget cuts.
