TERROR

California relatives of 9/11 victims will get second shot at scholarships after state bungling

Relatives of Californians who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks will get a second chance to apply for college scholarships under legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Brown on Friday announced signing SB384 by Democratic Sen. Mark DeSaulnier of Concord and Republican Sen. Ted Gaines of Roseville. It gives relatives of California victims until July 2016 to apply for a scholarship program funded through the sale of specialty memorial license plates.

The legislation arose after an investigation by The Associated Press found that just $21,381 was distributed to the children and spouses of the victims, out of more than $2 million intended for the scholarships.

SB384 requires the state to renew efforts to notify eligible candidates. A state audit found that officials failed to notify many of them.
