State of the State

Hosted by

Since Gov. Jerry Brown took office, he’s been focused on fiscal discipline And that continues to be the name of the game, though the state has seen revenue of $6 billion above expectations. But the state also has some liabilities to pay off – almost $220 billion of it in retirement and pensions. And Brown did say that one thing the state has to spend money on is infrastructure. Joining us to give perspective on the state of the state is John Myers.
