Corrections and Clarifications

In “Bill could allow CSU, UC systems to consider race during admission,” published Sept. 19, it was reported that Dorena Knepper, director of governmental affairs at CSUN, said Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez has until January 2006 to advance the bill or it will be stopped in its current form. In fact, since the bill passed through the first house, it can be taken up any time next year, and the January 2006 deadline does not apply. Also, Knepper’s quote regarding one of the purposes of the bill should have read, “This bill serves the purpose of keeping the importance of diversity in the minds of people.”
