DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - The campus newspaper for the University of California, Davis, will return to news racks two years after going out of print.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1QXFrw2 ) that UC Davis students approved a new fee last month that would subsidize operations for the California Aggie.

The newspaper canceled its print edition in 2014. It had struggled financially as advertisers moved to the Internet.

Aggie editors argue that printing the newspaper gives the organization more credibility and relevance as a campus institution.

The $11.19 annual fee is expected to take effect in the fall if approved by the UC Davis chancellor and president.

It would generate about $230,000 annually and provide the bulk of the Aggie’s revenue, enough to cover one-weekly printing costs and pay staffers.
