hold back 50- million dollars from the u-c system.. unless it adopts major financial reforms. a recent s new at 6:00 governor brown is threatening to hold back $50 million from a uc system unless it adopts major financial reforms. a recent state audit found the university overpaid administrators and hit tens of millions of dollars in reserve accounts while students were forced to pay more. when asked if he still supported uc president janet napolitano the governor deflected a bit. >> most people think she is doing a pretty good job. i have my issues with the
6:12 pm
university. i think their salaries are way too high. particularly the administrators and i put the 50 million in there so we can hold their feet to the fire. >> under the revised budget the state will keep the money until the university complies with the auditor's recommendations. but is the governor complying with what voters wanted? kicks 5's political reporter -- kpix 5's melissa caen says when it comes to spending the tobacco tax, the governor has a somewhat creative interpretation of what voters approved. ♪[ music ] >> because she doesn't understand what cancer is. >> reporter: you may remember the ads to stop kids from smoking proposition 56 adding a $2 per pack tax on cigarettes. 82% of the money collected was supposed to increase funding for existing healthcare programs. basically make the pie bigger and voters went for it. but the budget the governor released today here at the capital doesn't use that new tax money to make the pie bigger. >> unfortunately, the administration is continuing the practice of diverting that
6:13 pm
revenue to the general fund instead of spending it for the purposes for which it was collected. >> reporter: according to the legislative analysts office the governor's proposed budget uses $1.2 billion in tobacco taxes to pay for typical year to year cost increases in the program. basically, medi-cal maintenance. >> we very much would like to see an investment in the medi- cal program. >> reporter: which is what the voters really said when they voted for prop 56. this is the director of communications for health access california, one of the groups that helped to write proposition 56. >> they wanted to increase the benefits the number of people that receive care. >> reporter: health access wants to see some of the money pay for expanded services for young adults and dental care. we asked the governor about his plans. >> there is only a certain amount of money and if you don't do what our budget does, then you have to find other cuts in the medi-cal program and the reason why i did it was
6:14 pm
because i thought that was the least harmful painful way to go. >> reporter: do you think -- your attempts to go to the voters later if they lose faith in the fact that the taxes are being used what they are voted for. >> they are going for medi-cal and there is flexibility in the way they wrote that and we are trying to use the money the best way we can. >> the governor isn't the only person that makes decisions in the budget. and we have been talking to many other legislative leaders throughout the capital. in sacramento, melissa caen, kpix 5. a civil grand jury is calling for the ouster of contra costa county's top law enforcement official after he admitted he broke the law. district attorney mark peterson secretly spent more than $66,000 of his campaign money on himself over a five-year period. he agreed to pay a $45,000 fine late last year saying he regretted the mistakes. the civil grand jury said today he should also lose his job
6:15 pm
because of, quote, willful or corrupt misconduct in office. no comment from the d.a.'s office tonight. the case is now going to be turned over to an appointed prosecutor or district attorney in another county. after months of negotiations, a deal has just been reached between oakland unified and ac transit. the agreement will save 17 bus routes to community day, montera middle school and skyline high. about 1600 students take those buses to get to school. the dispute started in january. that's when oakland unified notified ac transit that it would no longer pay $2.5 million for bus service. ac transit then threatened to cancel service to three schools. new at 6:00, city college of san francisco made college free for everyone starting next semester. all it wanted from students is they maintain a c average. now ccsf has dropped that requirement! kpix 5's reporter emily turner went to ask, is it a good idea to spend taxpayer money on college students who are
6:16 pm
flunking? >> reporter: exactly. the question there is, how you feel about college. do you feel like it's a right or do you feel like it's a privilege? well, the city and the college both feel like it's a right and they are not going to put limitations on that. the school has been marred by scandal over the years. city college once on shaky footing with its accreditor also faced reports of misuse of funds. so now it's looking to make headlines of a brighter sort with free college. >> to have the opportunity, this means everything and wow it's just opened up so many opportunities for me and now, like, so many more open for me. >> reporter: she plans to enroll in the free city program and while she is a good student, the board of city college has decided she doesn't have to be. the program's enrollees don't have to have minimum gpa requirements to attend or have to complete half their units. >> so in other colleges if you don't make grades you lose your scholarship.
6:17 pm
in the real world with a job, if you don't complete half of your credits or whatever you're supposed to, you lose your job. why is this program different without that kind of accountability? >> well, actually, it's very similar to how, um, we do our public school system. when students fail classes in the middle school or in high school, we expect them to keep coming back to graduate at a certain point. the whole purpose of education should be about supporting people to graduate. >> reporter: so the rules that were originally in place to protect taxpayers have been deemed barriers to entry. instead of repercussions, the school says, it has a support system with counseling and tutoring. although students aren't subject to city college's academic code. after the first semester they will reassess and in the meantime "hope for the best" from the students. >> there's issues they need to look at in order to make it
6:18 pm
more efficient and responsible but i think the initiative is there which is really important which is higher education for everyone in order to make more informed and, um, better society. >> reporter: city college is the largest school to offer free tuition but they stand to gain with this as well because more than likely, their student population will swell which will bring in more money from the state government in the form of funding. now, how many people they are expecting that has yet to be determined. enrollment does not open until the end of this month. live in san francisco, emily turner, kpix 5. looking like a windy day out there, paul. >> it's breezy and it's where the breeze is coming from which is the very chilly ocean. >> the air-conditioner. >> the world's largest air- conditioner. we have to talk about the fact that it has different levels. two years ago the water was 63 degrees and humid in san francisco. not right now. no. it's kind of cold in the city and we're looking at
6:19 pm

6:24 pm
blah. >> reporter: things are so slow right now draymond green made headlines complaining about headlines. he is annoyed how his recent comments about the cavs have an easy road to the finals were used to stir up controversy. >> it's pretty pathetic that that's what the headline everybody wants -- you know, draymond disappointed with who cleveland played. do i care who cleveland played? it's just ridiculous how everybody is always pushing for a controversy. so everybody, draymond said cleveland is playing great basketball. >> let's hope he keeps talk with the media. cotton has been sent down to aaa. giants back home. going to have two familiar faces back in the line-up against the reds. brandon crawford and denard span were activated from the dl. maybe this will be the spark
