Editorial Says Gov. Brown’s Budget Proposals Uncertain
A Contract Costa Times editorial argues that although Gov. Jerry Brown (D) "can rightly claim California is on its most stable financial footing in more than a decade," the state is "nowhere near out of the woods." According to the editorial, Brown's fiscal year 2013-2014 budget proposal "hinges in part on factors outside his control," such as the "court reaction to the governor's attempt to take back control of state prisons" and "the state cost of federal health care reform."
