Meanwhile, efforts have been underway within the state legislature in Sacramento, with key support from California State Senator Alfred Alquist and Assemblyman John Vasconcellos, to obtain state monies for the project.

In June 1992, efforts pay off and the California Legislature appropriates the first state funds ($1 million) for the planning of a California State University campus at Fort Ord. However, the funds are not ensured until the legislature passes California's 1992-1993 budget in the fall and Governor Wilson signs that budget.
