GOVERNOR BROWN SIGNS AB 97, THE 2017-2018 MAIN STATE BUDGET AND AB 120 PROPOSITION 56 TOBACCO TAX BUDGET BILL
Brown Apparently Makes No Line Item Vetoes – Signs 13 of the Budget Trailer Bills That Have Been Presented To Him So Far – More Budget Trailer Bills On Their Way To the Governor Including Health Budget Trailer Bill
SACRAMENTO, CA [BY MARTY OMOTO, CDCAN LAST UPDATED 06/27/2017 04:00 PM] – Governor Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown, Jr., this afternoon signed AB 97. the 2017-2018 main state budget bill, and AB 120, the Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax budget bill, and thirteen of the budget trailer bills that were on his desk, including bills dealing with developmental services, In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) funding for the counties, K-12 Education, CalWORKS and more.
The Governor apparently did not make any line item vetoes reducing or eliminating any appropriations in the main budget bill.
AB 120, the Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax budget bill includes funding for specific Medi-Cal provider rate increases under specific conditions.
There are still several more budget trailer bills – including the health budget trailer bill – that the Legislature passed on Monday that have not yet been actually presented to his office. The Governor is expected to sign all those bills – which represent the budget agreement reached earlier in June between the Governor and Democratic legislative leaders.
In signing the budget plan for the state budget year that begins July 1, 2017, the Governor said in a statement that “California is taking decisive action by enacting a balanced state budget. This budget provides money to repair our roads and bridges, pay down debt, invest in schools, fund the earned income tax credit and provide Medi-Cal health care for millions of Californians.”
