About the Program

California’s fiscal problems are profound and enduring. The current budget crisis has only exacerbated many resource challenges in California—from the state’s debt burden to legal constraints to pension obligations. First, we’ll learn what the markets think about the issues buffeting the state from Standard & Poor’s senior director, Gabriel Petek. Then, State Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor will join PPIC President Mark Baldassare for a discussion about the current crisis and options for a brighter fiscal future for California.
