To the Members o the Senate and the Assembly o the Caliornia Legislature:Caliornia today is poised to achieve something that has eluded us or more than a decade — a budget that liveswithin its means, now and or many years to come.We are in this avorable position both because o the huge budget reductions that you have made in the last twoyears, and because the people voted or Proposition 30.Under this budget, K‑12 school districts will see an increase in unds.
School districts serving those students whohave the greatest challenges will receive more generous increases — so that all students in Caliornia have theopportunity to succeed.
This budget also ocuses more responsibility and accountability on those who are closestto our students.This budget proposes annual unding increases or public higher education.
The goal is to provide our studentswith a solid and aordable education.
It challenges the leaders o our higher education system to do better by ourstudents by deploying their teaching resources more eectively.This budget takes the next step to implement ederal health care reorm.
Given the complexity and nancial risk,I urge you to expand our health care system in ways that are both aordable and sustainable.This budget nally puts Caliornia on a path to long‑term scal stability.
What must be avoided at all costs isthe boom and bust, borrow and spend, o the last decade.
Fiscal discipline is not the enemy o democraticgovernance, but rather its undamental predicate.
That is the spirit that I trust will characterize our work togetherin the coming year.With respect,
Edmund G. Brown Jr.
