Gov. Brown’s budget proposal released

Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2012-13 budget proposal, released Jan. 5, shows that California has a deficit of $9.2 billion.

Brown proposes $4.2 billion in cuts from various programs, with $1.3 billion coming from education, and further temporary tax increases in sales and personal income from those who earn more than $250,000 per year.

The proposals will be voted upon during the November elections.

Gov. Brown’s proposal does not endorse reductions toward California community colleges.

If this new budget proposal is not passed, community colleges may be subject to mid-year trigger cuts of approximately $20 million, according to a statement issued by Los Angeles Community College District Chancellor Daniel LaVista.
