This year California has set a new record for the longest budget delay in history. In November, voters will consider a ballot measure that would significantly change California’s budget process by lowering the required two-thirds legislative vote to a simple majority. This bipartisan conversation—featuring former Governor Pete Wilson and former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown—offer key insights into the budget process and California’s future.

This event is co-sponsored with The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The James Irvine Foundation.
