Other Budget Issues

Last Updated: 2/19/2010
Budget Issue: Governor proposes to apply -0.38 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to most K-12 and child care and development programs (CCD).
Program: California Department of Education
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend rejecting proposal and instead notwithstanding statutory COLA provisions. Applying a negative COLA after years of not providing positive COLAs is unreasonable.
