Budget

 

Creating jobs, making roads safer.

Accelerates $2.8 billion towards improving commutes, fixing roads, strengthening overpasses and bridges, and building mass transit.

 

Prioritizing Public Education

California’s budget spends a record amount on K-12 schools, raising per pupil spending to over $11,000 – the highest in California history.

 

Encouraging Graduation from Higher Education

We funded CalGrants and encouraged graduation with $25 million in completion grants at the Community Colleges and $12.5 million in graduation incentives at CSU.

 

A Real Healthcare Plan

While Congress hides its healthcare repeal, California’s budget directs $546 million towards healthcare access, family planning and care for the developmentally disabled.

 

Childcare

Parents shouldn’t have to choose between going to work or taking care of their children. Senate Democrats fought to expand eligibility for childcare programs.

 

On time. Balanced. Adds to Reserve.

Democrats continue to lead an era of responsible, progressive and stable state budgeting that has grown our state’s economy.

 

California Values

This budget reflects our values and invests in areas, people and programs that work.
