Brown Signs $11 Billion In Budget Cuts

Sponsored by:

Governor Jerry Brown signed 13 bills last Thursday to reduce California’s $26.6 billion budget deficit.

In a press conference immediately following, Brown repeated his call for state legislators to let the people of California vote on whether to temporarily extend existing taxes or make deeper cuts to core services like education and public safety.

Governor Brown was Tuesday’s KVML’s “Newsmaker of the Day”.

The bills signed last week enact the following solutions:

Expenditure reductions – $8.2 billion
Revenues – $0.3 billion
Other – $2.6 billion
Total – $11.2 billion

AB 95 – Resources

AB 97 – Health Services

AB 99 – Proposition 10

AB 100 – Proposition 63

AB 105 – Transportation

SB 70 – Education (with message)

SB 72 – Human Services

SB 74 – Developmental Services (with message)

SB 78 – Judiciary

SB 80 – General Government (with message)

SB 82 – Cash Resources (with message)

SB 84 – Loans and Transfers

SB 86 – Tax Enforcement

For the full text of these bills, visit: The messages reflect technical adjustments to these bills that 1) clarify the deferred payments to community colleges in the upcoming fiscal year and 2) eliminate appropriations that are not needed because these bills were passed on a two-thirds basis.

The Legislature remains stalled over Brown’s proposal for additional revenue to fill the other half of the budget shortfall.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
