Governor Proposes $138 Billion California Budget

Governor Proposes $138 Billion California Budget

State Sen. Scott Wilk, R-Antelope Valley, applauded Brown's proposal.

"Life is very giddy at the peaks. but I'm not giddy", he said. The revised budget maintains his proposal in January to direct $3.5 billion into the rainy day fund in addition to the $1.5 billion constitutionally required through legislation that created the fund in 2014.

Brown's revised budget projects an $8.8 billion surplus, the largest since at least the 2000-01 state budget year.

Brown has consistently warned that California is riding a wave of economic growth and the budgetary good times will eventually end.

He lauded the governor for prioritizing emergency grants to local governments to deal with the state's homeless crisis, but said more needs to be done to expand health care to put the state on the path to universal coverage.

Brown Jr. today released a revised state budget proposal that boosts education funding to an all-time high, fills the Rainy Day Fund to the brim and directs billions of dollars in one-time surplus funding to combat homelessness, improve mental health services and rebuild crumbling infrastructure.

Legislative Democrats and outside interest groups are pushing to boost funding for health care, higher education, welfare, child care and a wide variety of other initiatives.

The governor's budget would also provide $312 million for mental health services to provide training for mental health professionals and early identification of mental health problems.

The May Revision proposes $96 million, which includes additional auction proceeds and other funds, to implement the Forest Carbon Plan and take other actions to protect California's forests against the increasing threat of disastrous wildfires. The income limits tied to that tax credit are also being increased to reflect the state's minimum wage increase to $12 an hour in 2019.

"I'm trying to leave the most responsible budget I can for the next governor", the Democrat said at a briefing in Sacramento.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti praised the hundreds of millions of dollars set aside to fight homelessness Friday by Gov.

Clinton was impeached for lying under oath and obstructing justice, but was later acquitted in another Senate trial. Clinton apparently confirmed he would go to an event hosted by Town & Country magazine, NBC News reported .

The Assembly budget committee's ranking Republican, Jay Obernolte of Hesperia, said the surplus means there was no need for the state to impose a $52 billion gas tax to pay for transportation projects. "It's hard to understand why California raised its gas and auto taxes by over $5 billion when the money is clearly already there to pay for transportation improvements and repairs".

Infrastructure ($2 billion) - The state has huge liabilities from years of deferred maintenance and would use these funds for universities, courts, state facilities and flood control.

By law, about half of the budget is automatically directed to K-12 education and community colleges.

He's also still pushing for a new online community college to train working adults who don't have the time and flexibility for a traditional college program. His administration has aggressively worked to sell lawmakers on the plan and said recently that the first curriculum would be a certificate in medical coding.

California firefighters and fire chiefs have asked for $100 million for overtime, equipment and dispatchers to better prepare for potential fires during risky weather conditions.

Brown released his spending plan Friday, kicking off his last round of negotiations with Democratic legislative leaders.

The legislature is supposed to pass a budget by June 15, so the governor can sign it by July 1. If they're late, lawmakers' pay will be docked.

After flipping through financial charts and introducing his new dog Callie, Brown reflected on the challenge of managing California's volatile tax system facing the next governor.

Brown, who took office in 2011 while the state was still reeling from the effects of the recession, has been building up a cushion for future downturns.

Since then, revenue during the busy April tax-filing season came in even higher than expected.
