2020-21 Budget Year
Gov. Gavin Newsom introduced his proposed $222 billion budget for 2020-21 on January 10. Although the governor continues to be fiscally conservative as he prepares for an economic slowdown by depositing $2 billion into the state rainy day fund, the budget allocates additional money for education, including funding his budget priorities of early education, special education, educator recruitment, as well as student health and wellness. The General Fund budget is $157 billion which is a 2.23 percent increase over 2019-20.
