Governor Jerry Brown and California lawmakers could have a lot more money available to work with in the upcoming state budget. As Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler reports, that includes a limited amount with no strings attached.
Last Friday, activists staged demonstrations in cities across California protesting the state budget proposal Governor Jerry Brown released last week. Inland Empire social service advocates and others demonstrated in downtown Riverside, advocating for more state spending on community programs, justice for undocumented immigrants, and higher minimum wages. KVCR's Natalya Estrada was at the Riverside protest and has this report.
California Republican Legislative leaders were quick to praise Governor Jerry Brown's budget proposal for its priorities and prudence, while the Governor's fellow Democrats in Sacramento expressed disappointment with what Brown left out of the budget.
