Gov. Brown to release 2013 budget

Jan. 10, 2013

By Katy Grimes

With all of the hoopla surrounding Gov. Jerry Brown’s announcement that he will release his 2013-14 budget proposal today, don’t expect many hard questions of the governor.

“If a steady economic recovery continues and the Legislature and the Governor keep a tight rein on state spending in the next couple of years, there is a strong likelihood that the state will have operating surpluses in subsequent years,” the Legislative Analyst’s Office recently reported in November.

“Steady economic recovery?” Really? The LAO’s projected budget surpluses in the 2015 fiscal year made many in the state scratch their heads. Isn’t the LAO supposed to be non-partisan?

Stay tuned later today as CalWatchdog unveils Brown’s proposed budget, after Brown’s finance director has a chance to explain it to media. I am sure this will be interesting now that we are enjoying a steady economic recovery.
