  • Gov. Brown's $190 Billion State Budget

"California has faced 10 recessions since World War II and we must prepare for the 11th", Brown wrote in his budget message.

Working with community colleges, private colleges "are confident we can and will improve the number of transfers into our sector", said Kristen Soares, president of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities in a statement Wednesday expressing thanks for Brown's plan.

Under the proposal, the state's rainy-day reserve fund would increase by $5 billion to $13.5 billion, which Brown said was necessary for future economic downturns.

"This formula recognizes the fact that a child in a family making $20,000 a year or speaking a language different from English or living in a foster home requires more help", Brown said in his 2013 State of the State speech.

Community college tuition for full-time California residents ranges from roughly $1,100 to $1,400 a year, depending on course load. "Can you tell me the legacy of Goodwin Knight or George Deukmejian?" he asked, notably leaving out his father Pat Brown, whose legacy is widely believed to include building up the state's universities and infrastructure. "Let's not blow it now". The entire state budget is $190 billion, which includes bond revenue and special funds.

Republican Senator Tom Berryhill, who represents district eight, says, "Governor Brown's budget only proves what Republicans have been saying all along: Taxes are too darn high". For the Senate, that means investing in our K-12 schools - especially by fully funding our Local Control Funding Formula to help close the achievement gap in our state. According to the new budget plan, a lack of action to fund the health plan would have stiff consequences for the state: "failure by Congress to extend funding beyond March 2018 would increase state costs by hundreds of millions of dollars in 2018-19". The state's general fund pays for basic state services such as education, prisons and social-service programs.

Brown sent this annual budget proposal to the California Legislature Wednesday for the sixteenth and final time. As part of his spending proposal, the budget summary suggested that more information about how LCFF money is allocated and spent by school districts could be required in the next fiscal year. To justify this approach, he highlighted how the volatile California tax structure that is swelling coffers now has previously forced massive budget cuts during recessions - including the $27 billion deficit he inherited back in 2011. The UC plans to add 2,000 additional undergraduate students in fall 2018 and requested funding support to add 500 more graduate students.

The state's budget must be approved by June 15, so it can be enacted July 1.

As the state won't know for months the impact of the GOP tax bill, Yee said, "Brown is wise in exercising caution with responsible short-term spending, boosting rainy day fund reserves, and paying down debt".
