As you may know, the state currently faces a very large budget deficit. How serious a problem do you think this is?

1


Do you think California state government should deal with the budget deficit through spending cuts, through tax increases, or through a mixture of both?

The largest areas of state government spending are K-12 public education, higher education, health and social services, and prisons and public safety.

What do you think should be the highest priority to protect from budget cuts?

Higher education

Health and social services

Prisons and public safety

K-12 public education


Which of these reforms would be your top choice for dealing with the California state budget?

With approximately half the state budget going to education, reform our schools and how education dollars are spent by providing essential skills to students so they can succeed in the workplace, cutting bureaucracy and strengthening financial management, expanding teacher training, and paying higher salaries to teachers who improve student performance.

Ensure that whatever mix of new taxes and spending cuts is adopted, the end result is a balanced budget.

Eliminate annual program funding and salary increases in the budget that are automatically linked to inflation.

33

Ensure that any tax increases are temporary, broadly-based (not focused on any single industry or group of taxpayers), and least harmful to the state's economy.

31

Reform labor regulations governing overtime, wages, rest periods and benefits to provide more flexibility for employers and employees in the workplace.

27

Ensure that one-time revenues can never again be used to finance ongoing state programs..
