Insight Examines Prop 31



Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Proposition 31 was designed to make state government more transparent and efficient, but its opponents say it will do the opposite. 

The multi-faceted initiative includes provisions that would give local governments more freedom to spend state and federal money and it would grant California's governor authority to cut the state's budget in a fiscal emergency. 
 
It also establishes a two-year legislative budget cycle and requires lawmakers to balance revenues and expenditures. 
 
Capital Public Radio's State Government Reporter Amy Quinton has been speaking with supporters and opponents of Proposition 31.  She joins us to explain what people like or don't like about it. 
 
We also speak with the Director of Sacramento State University's Center for California Studies and former Analyst for the Legislative Analyst's Office Steve Boilard about the costs and benefits of the two-year budget cycle that would be implemented if Proposition 31 passed.
