California lawmakers will take final votes on the state budget Friday.
This will be the second budget vote in a week in the California Legislature. Lawmakers approved a Democratic plan Monday, but it didn’t have Gov. Jerry Brown’s approval. On Tuesday Brown and Legislative leaders came to an agreement on a $115.4 billion General Fund spending plan.
That’s the bill the Senate and Assembly will now take up. It includes money for expanded state-subsidized child care slots and for extending Medi-Cal to 170,000 undocumented children living in California.
The houses will also each vote on several trailer bills that dictate how the budget will be implemented.
