Summary of Enacted 2014-2015 Budget
June 20, Governor Brown
signed the $156.3 billion 2014-15 budget into law. Next year's budget focuses
on ensuring the state's long term fiscal stability by paying down debt and
setting aside over $2 billion for reserves including a Rainy Day Fund. It also
makes incremental but significant improvements in the health, education and
welfare of California's children and families-- a welcome change after years of
harsh and ill-considered cuts.

Governor Jerry Brown released his 2014 revised state budget proposal on Tuesday, May 13.
