Dollars and Democracy: An Introduction to the State Budget Process
This first session is geared toward those interested in learning about — or refreshing their knowledge of — the basics of California’s state budget process, including what happens when, and the roles of the Governor, the Legislature, and the public.
Part II (11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.)
State Budget and Policy Preview: What to Expect in 2020
This session takes a look ahead to the upcoming state budget and legislative deliberations. Panelists will explore the key debates that will shape budget and policy choices at the state and national levels and what’s at stake for Californians with low and middle incomes.
