Memorandum prepared for the SCG Public Policy Committee by Seyron Foo, Director, Public Policy and Government Relations:

On January 10, Governor Jerry Brown released his proposed budget for 2017-2018 (the state fiscal year runs from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018). With a dimmer view on the state’s fiscal health, the budget proposes to address a projected $1.6 billion deficit. This deficit is driven by a slower growth in revenues, predominantly in the state’s three primary revenue sources: income, sales, and corporate taxes.
