With the economy doing better than it has in years, the state of California is collecting a surplus of revenue.  By law, most of the extra dollars must go to education.  But there is a wide expanse of education programs and initiatives on which California could spend extra revenue, and some lawmakers have different education spending priorities than Governor Jerry Brown.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more in this report from Capital Public Radio.

Ken Vincent has retired. We appreciate the way he shared his expertise with many of our young interns and reporters over the nearly eight years he spent as KVCR's lead journalist and Morning Edition host. We wish him a happy and relaxing retirement as he spends more time in his garden and, as he mentioned, more time on the golf course. Thanks Ken!
