It is just business as usual for one of the largest state governments...What exactly is California's "dismal fiscal situation?"
Exactly: just "business as usual" for a state with 40 million people; ups and downs.It is just business as usual for one of the largest state governments...
The latest budget proposal from California Governor Jerry Brown does not account for possible changes to federal health care funding.
Brown says that’s because it’s impossible to tell whether a replacement by Republicans in Washington will become law and—if it does—how it will differ from the bill that passed Congress.
The measure would roll back an expansion of Medi-Cal. Brown says the state would either have to drop coverage for millions or pay an amount roughly equal to the entire cost of the University of California system.
"That kind of money would defund the university if you did it all from one source, so the only answer is to fight," he says. "We gotta stop it."
A chart behind Brown at his budget announcement calculated the state would lose more than $5 billion of federal funds in 2019 and almost $25 billion within a decade.
Then there is the K-12 school budgets issues...
Well, if the FEDS really do cut $5B in monies going back to CA in 2019, it won't be rosy...Exactly: just "business as usual" for a state with 40 million people; ups and downs.
Hardly a "dismal fiscal situation!"
If state government funding is too complicated for you, live in Kansas where the current Governor bankrupted the state with "trickle down" tax cuts!
That $5 billion was due to the repeal of Obamacare. What day does Obamacare end?Well, if the FEDS really do cut $5B in monies going back to CA in 2019, it won't be rosy...
Whenever the GOP finally decided to cut their political throats...That $5 billion was due to the repeal of Obamacare. What day does Obamacare end?
Are we really against California's continuing attempts to promote the alternative vehicle fuels market?Yes, ALL state budgets have issues... Let's get back to the point of this thread:
California has a very "healthy" cap and trade program that will be used for many environmental programs including EV rebates!
I wan't aware that this was a competition.I think his point is something about people in glass garages shouldn't charge their EV in the nude! hahahahaha
I made my point about several posts earlier...I wan't aware that this was a competition.
I took 2 minutes of my day to provide you with a clue that may answer your question. It's up to you to follow that clue if you seek an answer.

Lots of people unfairly bash California!
California is NOT having dismal fiscal problems; just what you would expect in the normal ups and downs of a state of 40 million people.
The fact of the matter is that with a very healthy Cap and Trade program bringing in billions of dollars for environmental programs, there WILL be money spent on EV car rebates; the exact amount to be determined at a later date.
AND, don't we want to continue to support California, as the one state that has fostered the whole EV and alternative fuels auto market?
If your answer is NO, you are on the wrong forum!
Your geographical history has little or no relevance to your knowledge of state budgetary matters...I lived in California for 5 years. My wife was born there and has family there.
California has a proposed $1.5 billion budget deficit. Adding $3 billion more isn't going to fly.
