Once again, California is facing a budget crisis – but this is nothing new. The state has faced fiscal difficulties for over 30 years, problems magnified by initiative limitations, competing political objectives, and population growth. Fortunately, today we have bipartisan awareness about the structural nature of the state’s fiscal dysfunction and the need for long-term solutions. Our panel of seasoned political experts will discuss budgetary lessons learned and provide insight into the best course for California’s future.
