We noted in a prior post that some time in December, there are typically leaks about what will be in the state budget proposed by the governor for the upcoming fiscal year. So far, however, that hasn't happened. Indeed, it is unclear at this point exactly when the budget proposal will be released. The state constitution says it must be released by January 10. But this year that date falls on a Sunday. So some time this week (Friday or before), there should be a budget proposal. At the moment, there is no indication of the date from the governor's website nor is there a listing for the news conference that goes with the budget on the calchannel.
