SACRAMENTO – Recent reports indicate the projected budget shortfall has grown by an additional $15 billion, resulting in a potential shortfall range from $38 billion to $53 billion. 

The Senate’s early action plan would reduce the shortfall by over $17 billion.

This immediate action takes the shortfall range down to a more manageable $9 billion to $24 billion and enables final budget negotiations later in the year to focus on closing the remaining gap while working to protect the progress to core programs that California has made in recent years.
