Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

Well, we have a revised budget. With a little bit more optimism, Jerry Brown loosened the purse strings a little bit, although was also very cautionary of long term prospects for the state budget, both from prospects of the normal up-and-downs of the state's tax base as well as the the threats from the federal government of cuts. He warned government-funded agencies that "cuts are coming," report Jim Miller and Christopher Cadelago in the Bee.

In particular, Governor Brown singled out the Trump/House health care proposals, citing huge financial impacts on California and its citizens, reports John Myers in the Times.

The winners were mostly K-14 education, buoyed by the constitutional requirement of Proposition 98 as well as some health care programs. Also, to the meme that the transportation tax would be diverted, it was made absolutely clear that it could be the case because of the measure's provisions and the existing restrictions on transportation funding. It just can't happen. 

The Bee's Alexei Koseff reports that Jerry Brown is heading to Riverside to sign the side deals that eased the transportation tax among regional lawmakers.

It's Friday and we're all tired, so we'll wrap this up now. Have a great weekend!

Senator Fuller Responds to Governor's Revised Budget
fuller.cssrc.us
“Since the start of the legislative session, taxpayers have already been saddled with historic tax increases, threatened with higher tuition costs, and warned to prepare for higher home energy costs. Give taxpayers a break, spend their money efficiently, and send the governor a more effective budget that takes into account the rising cost to live and work in California.”

A President From California? The Speculation Begins :: Fox&hounds
foxandhoundsdaily.com
California has not had a president in the White House since the 1980s when Ronald Reagan occupied the office, and has not had a credible contender for the job since Jerry Brown and Pete Wilson made efforts in the 1990s. What is striking about this absence of California presidential contenders is that the most populous and powerful state in the nation can usually be counted on as a launching pad for presidential bids.
