Hastings College of the Law may have to kiss another $1.5 million in California state money goodbye next year — and that’s the best-case scenario.

Gov. Jerry Brown proposed a $500 million reduction in state funding to the University of California, among a slew of other cuts, in a news conference Tuesday morning. Hastings is being asked to absorb its equivalent of the 18 percent slash under Brown’s budget. The final number would depend on a June special election, when voters will be asked to approve an extension of the current income and sales taxes, among other things. Brown said Tuesday that he’ll have to find other combinations to deal with a $25.4 billion budget gap if voters don’t pass the tax extensions.
