2020-21 Budget Invests In Key County Priorities
January 16, 2019
Governor Gavin Newsom released his proposed $222.2 billion 2020-21 budget last Friday that included significant investment in a number of areas that are core priorities for CSAC.
“The state budget underscores the interconnectedness between the state and counties in improving the lives of Californians and implementing statewide initiatives,” CSAC President and Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett said in a statement released by CSAC. “Thanks in part to CSAC’s ongoing advocacy and education efforts, the 2020-21 budget invests in critical areas like homelessness and housing, wildfire prevention and resiliency, and criminal justice to further provide vital services to our communities.”
CSAC’s Legislative staff has produced its customary Budget Action Bulletin, analyzing the budget proposal through a California Counties lens. Read the extensive document here.
Members of the Governor’s Administration briefed CSAC’s Executive Committee hours after the budget was released, and CSAC staff held an in-depth conference call with county administrators that same day. CSAC legislative staff will be working closely with the Administration and Legislature to ensure county priorities are reflected in the final budget.
