How Republican budget cuts would affect California

Feb 19, 2011 9:10:16 PM- latimes.com
Under the GOP House proposals, about $1.5 billion in federal funds for California would be trimmed, affecting such things as Pell grants, Head Start, K-12 education and rail projects.

University of California students would take a nearly $55-million hit from reductions in Pell grants. A $20-million check promised for bringing a rail line closer to the L.A. airport would be taken back. Head Start cuts would eliminate about 14,000 slots for low-income children in California.
