December 1, 1989 - The purpose of this policy brief is to provide the Legislature with a context for considering proposals to address Butte County's fiscal problems. The analysis is based on a review of Butte County's past financial transactions and its 1989-90 final budget. Our intent is to explain the basic fiscal trends underlying Butte's current condition, not to evaluate management of the county or past policy decisions made by county officials.
August 1, 1989 - This report summarizes the fiscal effect of the 1989 Budget Act (Chapter 93 - SB 165). In addition, it discusses major spending decisions that were enacted in bills other than the Budget Bill, that were part of an overall state spending plan for 1989-90. The report highlights the funding levels approved for the state's major programs in 1989-90, and compares these funding levels to those authorized in prior years. This report also discusses projected state revenues for 1989-90, including the key assumptions underlying the projections and revisions that have been made to them since the Governor's Budget was introduced in January.
July 1, 1989 - Recommendations for Changes in The Reimbursements of Homicide Trails
February 22, 1989 - In beginning its work on the state budget for 1989-90, the Legislature faces the most adverse set of fiscal circumstances it has faced since the recession of 1981-82. The state’s budget reserve has been completely depleted, and a deficit in the current-year's budget appears likely. At current levels of service, expenditure requirements for 1989-90 will exceed projected revenue growth by at least $500 million, and the full restoration of the state's reserve fund would require another $1.1 billion. This fiscal situation has come about despite the continued strength of the California economy. The state government faces a number of challenges. Here, we review the challenges facing the Legislature and the state; review the state's fiscal condition, the major areas where demand for state ser-vices is outstripping its ability to provide them, and the extent to which the state's exist-ing revenue base is capable of supporting the delivery of existing and additional state services; and provide an examination of the strategies proposed.
