Governor Jerry Brown Proposes $132 Billion California Budget

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed a $132 billion budget for California as he kicks off his final year in office.

That's a 5% increase from last year's budget. It represents Brown's typically restrained approach to budgeting.

The budget also includes an additional $59 billion in special funds and bonds which are dedicated to specific purposes.

Brown's proposal is just the first stage of a months-long budget process. Now it heads to the Legislature for revisions. A final spending plan must be signed by the end of June.
