Brown: Future Spending Boost Not Part of New Budget Deal
On Tuesday, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) said he has not agreed to consider an increase in future spending if the economy outperforms his expectations. On Monday, Brown and legislative Democrats reached a budget agreement for fiscal year 2013-2014. The new plan would use the governor's economic forecast, which is more conservative than predictions in Democratsâ budget proposals that sought about $2 billion more in spending for state health programs and other services.
