Governor Brown Boosts Reserve in State Budget Plan

Governor Jerry Brown has unveiled his budget proposal for California. It’s a plan that focuses on building up the state’s “rainy day” reserve fund with money from a projected budget surplus. Some Democrats want new money to go toward re-building health and welfare programs, while Republicans want the surplus returned to tax-payers, launching a debate that lawmakers will consider over the coming months.
