Last week, Governor Brown proposed a balanced budget that pays off more than $11 billion in debt and builds a lasting rainy day fund while continuing to invest in public schools and expand health care coverage for millions. When Governor Brown took office, the state faced a massive $26.6 billion budget deficit and estimated annual shortfalls of roughly $20 billion. On Governor Brown’s watch, the state eliminated these deficits with billions of dollars in cuts and new temporary revenue approved by California voters.
