2015-16 State Budget


State Revenue, Including Sales Tax, Up Slightly
March 10, 2015

February proved to be another good month for the state’s General Fund, as all three of the major taxes—personal income, sales and use, and corporation taxes—came in above recent estimates, according to a report out this morning from the State Controller’s Office. 

The state’s fiscal position matters even more to counties this year than usual, since the state plans to pay a substantial portion of mandate debt to local agencies with revenues that come in above last summer’s estimates.

Much for Counties to Like in Governor’s Budget

CSAC applauds the Governor for once again striking a delicate balance between maintaining fiscal discipline and investing in critical programs important to all Californians. Counties have recently partnered with the Governor on major reforms in public safety, health care, and water to seek solutions that address many of the state’s pressing problems. This budget proposal continues these commitments and invests in California’s future.

“There are thousands of competing needs in California,” said CSAC President Vito Chiesa, a Stanislaus County Supervisor. “We appreciate the Governor listening to our voice and shaping a budget in that considers counties’ views. He understands the importance and benefits of paying down the debt owed to California counties; that money flows into local programs that help Californians in very real ways.”

CSAC is also pleased that the Governor included financial support for advancing important reforms in public health, public safety, and infrastructure programs that counties have significant roles in implementing. Counties also thank the Governor for including $150 million in current-year funding for county administration of the Medi-Cal program.
