WomanAg Academy- The California State Budget Process
California has the SIXTH largest economy in the WORLD and the budget process defies a simple definition. It is a process rather than a product. It is not the development of the Governor’s Budget, the Legislature’s enactment of a budget nor the executive branch’s administration of the budget. Rather, it is the combination of all of these phases with all the ramifications and influences of political interactions, relationships with federal and local governments, public input, natural events, legal issues, the economy, initiatives and legislation, etc. Learn from policy experts the budget process – from beginning to end – and how it is influenced from various interested parties at a state, federal and global level.
