Prop 26

New Proposition 26 implementation guidance has just been released by the League of California Cities. The League’s City Attorney’s Department has convened a task force that is working on a comprehensive analysis that will be available in mid January. In the mean time, the League has released an article providing preliminary guidance and answering “frequently asked questions.” Find it here:

The Governor on Monday released his May Revision to his FY2011-12 proposed budget. With budget cuts and fixes already adopted by the Legislature last month ($13.4 billion), some improvement in projected revenues ($6.6 billion), and a targeted reserve replenishment of $1.2 billion, the budget shortfall for the FY2011-12 budget year is $10.8 billion, and the ongoing structural gap is about $10 billion per year thereafter. The Governor’s proposed revision reduces some of the tax extensions, uses some of the higher revenue to increases school funding to meet a higher Prop98 minimum guarantee, makes fine-tuning revisions to the realignment proposal, and pays down some of the mounting debt from budgetary borrowing. The Governor is now calling for the reform, rather than elimination of Enterprise Zones, but continues to include in his proposed budget the elimination of Redevelopment and a shift of $1.7 billion in tax increment to benefit the state budget in FY2011-12.
