Scrambling to short-circuit a court-ordered enrollment freeze at the University of California, Berkeley, state legislators on Friday unveiled a proposed change to a landmark environmental law that would let the university admit students at its previously planned level despite a lawsuit charging that its growth is polluting the city.

“If this passes and is signed, it will allow Berkeley to go forward with full planned enrollment and no reduction,” said Phil Ting, who is the chair of the Assembly budget committee and helped craft the proposed legislation.
