(AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown and University of California President Janet Napolitano say their attempt to find common ground on the university's budget is going well, but they are divulging few details about what their talks will mean for this fall's tuition and admissions.

The two leaders briefly updated the rest of UC's governing board on Wednesday about their work as the sole members of a committee charged with recommending changes in how the university operates and spends its money.

The governor requested the inquiry after a majority of the Board of Regents gave Napolitano approval to increase student tuition by up to 5 percent in each of the next five years, a plan Brown opposed.

Napolitano says they have met twice so far and are scheduled to get together again in April.
