The 2018-19 Budget

California's Fiscal Outlook

In anticipation of the upcoming state budget process, our office publishes California's Fiscal Outlook each year. This year, the report is shorter and more focused, but we have supplemented it with a fuller discussion of the outlook for Proposition 98's minimum guarantee over the next several years. Additionally, we have provided shorter pieces in Health and Human Services and other areas.
