Brown To Give State of the State Speech

  

California is facing a mixed year. The state has a budget surplus, but a water shortage. Senate Budget Chair Mark Leno said Brown may tie those issues together in his speech.

 “It will be interesting what he has to say because, I think, we’re all very concerned that if we don’t see rain in the next two months, it may be a year before we do," Leno siad. "And that will really, dramatically, impact the state economically.” 

Assembly Republican leader Connie Conway said she wants Brown to be truthful about the state’s financial condition.

“Sometimes it’s easy to work around the facts," she said. "So, for me, we have a budget surplus, but how can we say we have a surplus when we have so much debt.” 

Brown will address a joint session of the legislature at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
