Follow up on state budget

We noted yesterday that the governor's state budget proposal for 2016-17 is due by Sunday, January 10. But since media conferences don't normally occur on weekends, the unveiling of the proposal was likely to be some time this week.

Now a statement on the governor's website indicates that the proposal will be made public at 10 am on Thursday.*

We noted that the governor and his staff have not leaked out bits of the budget, unlike in past years. However, members of the legislature have been indicating their budget and other priorities, rushing to get ahead of the governor. So far, none of these ideas seem to involve UC.**
