Legislature Adopts 2018-19 Budget Package

On Thursday, the California Legislature adopted the 2018-19 budget package, meeting the June 15 constitutional deadline for passing a budget. A handful of budget trailer bills, including those related to health and human services, have not yet been acted upon due to the requirement that bills must be in print for 72 hours before being considered. The Legislature is expected to take action on remaining budget trailer bills on Monday.

CHEAC prepared a memo highlighting items included in the Legislature’s budget package, including bills that must still be acted upon, available here. Should Monday’s actions change any of the items summarized in the memo, an update will be provided.
