January 5, 1993 - The California Department of Corrections (CDC) is one of the largest and fastest-growing departments in state government. The department spends about 90 percent of its budget—2.5 billion in 1992-93—on the operation of the state's prison system. As of December 1992, there were 109,141 inmates in state prison (almost double the system's design capacity). In this report, we assess the CDC's recent projections of the prison inmate population and discuss their fiscal implications.
January 1, 1993 - This document summarizes, by program area, the principal findings and recommendations set forth in the Analysis and the Perspectives and Issues.
January 1, 1993 - As has been the case in each of the past four years, the 1993-94 Governor’s Budget recognizes a substantial decline in the state’s fiscal fortunes. The continuing state recession has once again undermined the state’s current-year spending plan, and will force the Legislature and the Administration into more painful choices as they struggle to balance the budget for the 1993-94 fiscal year. Even without attempting to provide for a prudent reserve, this task will require spending cuts or revenue increases conservatively estimated at $8.6 billion over the next 18 months. Given the magnitude of actions already taken in recent years, resolving this year’s fiscal crisis requires a fundamental rethinking of governmental responsibilities in California.
December 28, 1992 - Los Angeles Unified School District: An Analysis of the 1992-93 Budget
November 1, 1992 - The 1992-93 budget situation presented the Legislature and the Governor with a second consecutive year of massive budget funding gaps due to the ongoing economic problems in California and the nation. Last year, the Legislature resolved a 1991-92 budget funding gap of $14.3 billion through the enactment of $7.2 billion of tax increases, $3.4 billion of spending reductions, and $3.7 billion in other actions. At that time, both the Legislature and the administration anticipated that their actions would balance the state’s spending needs with its expected revenues not only in 1991-92, but for 1992-93 as well. That expectation, however, assumed that California’s economy would resume its growth in mid-1991. Instead, the recession continued to drag down state revenues while simultaneously boosting spending needs for various programs.
September 8, 1992 - On September 2, 1992, Governor Wilson signed into law the 1992 Budget Act and related legislation. The $57.4 billion budget package ended a period of more than two months during which the state government operated without a budget. In addition to the Budget Act itself, the budget package includes 23 other measures that make the law changes necessary to achieve budgeted savings. This implementing legislation makes a wide variety of significant changes that affect most of the state’s major programs as well as state assistance to schools and local governments. This report is part of a series that highlights the impacts of the budget package.
July 3, 1992 - In this report, we explain the current status of the Proposition 98 minimum funding guarantee, and review how other budget proposals that have already been advanced would affect the level of the guarantee for 1992-93. Finally, we discuss other options that may be considered to generate savings for 1992-93.
