2009-10 Budget Analysis Series: Resources

Balancing the 2009–10 Budget

In this section, we report on the Governor’s proposals to create General Fund savings in the budgets for resources and environmental protection and offer a number of our own recommendations to achieve additional savings. The Governor‘s 2009–10 budget proposes only one significant General Fund budget–balancing solution in these areas of the budget—special fund loans to the General Fund. Other solutions include the elimination of CCC and a funding shift to bonds in DPR. Our additional savings proposals include several recommendations to (1) shift funding from the General Fund to fees and to (2) reduce or defer program expenditures in CalFire.
