A state lawmaker is asking a California State University foundation how much it will pay Sarah Palin to appear at a black-tie event in June.

Sen. Leland Yee requested details of the contract Monday between the nonprofit California State University Stanislaus Foundation and the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate. Palin will be the guest of honor at the CSU Stanislaus 50th anniversary gala on June 25.

Palin has charged some groups $100,000 for speaking fees.

Foundation board president Matt Swanson says Palin's contract prevents him from disclosing the details of her compensation.

Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, says such a stipulation might violate the California Public Records Act.
