State Budget

  • LATEST: Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed increasing funding for public education by more than $5.4 billion by 2016-17. Unveiled on Jan. 7, the governor’s 2016-17 budget would also boost per-student funding by $368, CTA fiscal analysts report. Much of the funding underwriting the new education spending proposals results from Proposition 30 revenues and other state income flowing from a recovering economy. The legislature will soon begin reviewing the proposed plan.  In May, the governor will release an updated budget version, and lawmakers will have until June 15 to send him a final spending bill that reacts to his revised proposal.
