About the Program

PPIC’s latest survey looks at Californians’ views of the future of their state—both near– and long–term. It touches on the post–election landscape, including the state budget and water policy. It also examines opinions on tax extensions, health care, higher education, and climate change. PPIC associate survey director Dean Bonner will highlight the findings, followed by a wide-ranging panel discussion on the most pressing issues facing the Golden State.

The survey was funded by the Blue Shield of California Foundation, the California Postsecondary Education Commission Foundation, The San Francisco Foundation, and the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
