The California Budget & Policy Center is pleased to continue our Policy Perspectives Speakers Series with Making Ends Meet: Policy Prospects This Year and Beyond for Promoting Economic Security in California. This event will include two sessions:
Part I (9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.)
Briefing on the Governor’s Revised Budget
The Budget Center team of analysts will present our “first look” analysis of Governor Jerry Brown’s May Revision to his proposed spending plan for 2018-19, the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2018. This part will highlight the key components of the revised budget and the implications for our state, with plenty of time to take your questions.
Part II (11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.)
Making Ends Meet: How Public Policies Can Help Promote Economic Security

- Anya Lawler, Policy Advocate, Western Center on Law & Poverty @anyalawler @Western_Center

This expert panel will explore how state budget and policy choices can help low- and middle-income Californians achieve economic security as well as discuss the threats posed by emerging federal proposals. The panel will draw on findings from our Making Ends Meet analysis, which shows how households across our state struggle to afford a basic family budget even amid a growing California economy.
