Measuring Up: The CBP’s Annual Chartbook Is Out

The California Budget Project (CBP) has released Measuring Up: The Social and Economic Context of the Governor’s Proposed 2012-13 Budget – the CBP’s signature annual “chartbook.” This publication provides an overview of the Governor’s proposed spending plan and the social and economic context that will shape this year’s budget debate.

Measuring Up looks at:

  • How the economic downturn has contributed to the $9.2 billion budget shortfall facing California;
  • How the Governor’s proposed budget aims to close the budget gap;
  • What the Governor’s proposed budget would mean for state support for education, health and human services, and other key areas.

The full chartbook is available here.
