University of California students marched on the State Capitol Monday, protesting Governor Jerry Brown's proposed budget cuts.

The governor has recommended a reduction in funding to the UC system by $500 million for the coming fiscal year.

According to the University of California, in 1990 students paid for 13 percent of their education and presently they pay 41 percent.

If the cuts go through, for the first time ever students could be paying more than the state.
