CSAC Applauds Governor’s Budget
January Proposal Supports Priorities, Offers Stability
The budget proposal released on January 10 by Governor Brown’s Administration continues the pattern and philosophy of past budgets. It is fiscally prudent and focused on funding the major initiatives and reforms that counties implement. The 2018/19 budget proposal places a priority on In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), Continuum of Care Reform for foster care youth, addressing the growing mental-health crisis in our jails and communities, and transportation infrastructure.
As a result of continued state General Fund support and the economy continuing to grow, at least modestly, revenues remain up, which should improve the year-two IHSS cost shift to counties.
