Newsom’s budget will make California’s problems worse

With the political maelstroms in Washington D.C., it’s easy to overlook California’s own pressing problems. Recently, Gov. Gavin Newsom submitted his 2021-22 State Budget proposal, which would make California’s troubles go from bad to worse. The $227.2 billion fiscal blueprint increases government unions’ power and wealth, pouring gasoline on California’s myriad public policy fires. More government spending won’t fix the economic problems facing the state. California has the country’s seventh-hi...

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Assembly will return to work on Friday from their summer recess to vote on a spending plan that closes the state’s estimated $54.3 billion deficit through a combination of temporary tax increases, delayed spending and cuts to colleges, courts and state worker salaries.

California governor agrees to nix cuts for seniors, others

By ADAM BEAM SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gavin Newsom has agreed not to cut funding for child care programs and health insurance for low-income older adults as part of his plan to cover the state’s estimated $54.3 billion budget deficit. Newsom’s budget proposal had recommended making fewer older adults eligible for Medicaid to save nearly $68 million. He had also proposed 10% cuts to all child care programs that help low-income adults go to work. After negotiations with the state Legislature, Newsom has ...

California Lawmakers Take Up Budget In Tense Economic Times

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Legislature will meet Monday to pass a budget for these uncertain times, without knowing how much money they have to spend and without an agreement with Gov. Gavin Newsom, whose veto pen could force lawmakers to start over. The result will be a speculative spending plan that leaves cash-strapped local governments and public school districts hanging as they await their fate in a budget that must somehow cover a deficit the governor’s office has estimated a...

Gov. Newsom submits revised budget plan with huge surplus

By Katy Murphy and John Woolfolk SACRAMENTO —  California is in the money, thanks to a flurry of tech IPOs expected to raise some $700 million in new tax revenue. But underlying the rosy state budget plan with a record $21.5 billion surplus that Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled Thursday glares a sobering paradox: Many of the state’s families are barely getting by. “The affordability crisis families face in this state is very real,” Newsom said, “and that’s why this budget tackles those challenges head...

Tax Credit for Films Removed from State Budget

The House version of the two-year state budget eliminates a tax break that has been both praised by fans and panned by critics – a $40 million tax credit for the movie industry. Both researchers from the left and right say it doesn’t pay off. Wendy Patton with the progressive Policy Matters Ohio says a study from Cleveland State found most of the jobs created by the state’s motion picture tax credit were temporary, and that film tax credits haven’t worked well for other states either. “There has...

Republican Lawmaker Wants Tax Cut in State Budget

There have been tax cuts in nearly every state budget since 2005. But Governor Mike DeWine has said now is the time to invest in Ohio, so there are no tax cuts in his budget. Some on the panel that makes changes to the budget are considering whether a tax cut can or should be included. Lawmakers are being advised by their economic researchers to cut the spending increase in DeWine’s budget by 25 percent. Republican Rep. Jim Butler (R-Oakwood) is on the House Finance Committee, and said he’s disa...

You might have unclaimed property from California, but the process can be frustrating (and watch for scams)

Delighted, that is, until he tried to claim that money. He spent 15 minutes filling out an online form, then got a response saying his claim could not be made...

October on Target with State Budget Projections

After a tough year of forecasting last year, the state's budget projections turned out to be right on target for last month. The state budget office estimates for how much personal income tax revenue it would bring in for October were off by just $141,000. Several categories of taxes were up sharply, such as the commercial activity tax -- nearly 25 percent above estimates for the month. But total tax revenue for the month was down by $80 million or 3 percent, and for the year, it's $13 million o...

Audit: School districts reap millions by OKing far-flung charters

By Jessica Calefati, CALmatters Several small, cash-strapped California school districts are using a loophole in state law to boost their revenue by overseeing a raft of far-flung charter schools, according to a recent report published by the state auditor. The result, the report says: dismal academic results for thousands of students and a lot of extra money for the districts, one of which increased its revenue more than 10-fold. Charter schools usually can’t open in California until they find ...

Ohio Schools Concerned About a $100 Million Transportation Cut in the State Budget

Both the House and Senate increased the amount the state will spend on its 610 school districts beyond Gov. John Kasich’s original budget proposal. But school leaders are concerned about a big cut that’s remained through all three versions of the budget. The Senate budget puts $271 million more into schools than the House budget does, meaning that only about 75 districts will get less money than they got last year. But school leaders say the largest general revenue fund cut to any part of the bu...
