Governor Brown's Revised Budget
Posted May 13th, 2014 @ 9:00am by KFBK News

Governor Brown is boosting spending in a revised budget...while tackling some state debt. 

Brown has unveiled a 107 billion dollar spending plan that puts the bulk of tax surpluses into expanded Medi-Cal for new Obamacare enrollees.

About one and a half billion would be put into a new rainy day fund and he's also seeking a deal to address the shortfall in teacher pensions. 'I can tell you this is good news for California,' Brown says. 

He wants contributions from the state, school districts and teachers upped $5 billion annually by 2012.

The budget now goes to the legislature, where some Democrats have been pushing to restore social programs.

Brown says this is all we're working with. 'I've invited everyone to scrutinize - if you can find more cookies in the jar, halleluja.'
