Mac Taylor has served California as the Legislative Analyst since 2008, capping a four decade career with the office. The Legislative Analyst’s Office was created in 1941, and Taylor is just the fifth person to serve in that role analyzing the state budget and advising lawmakers on how new laws impact the state’s coffers.
He’s a nonpartisan fiscal expert with experience dealing with the state’s tax, retirement, labor and housing issues. Earlier this summer, Mac Taylor announced his retirement.
He spoke with CapRadio Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler about his long and distinguished career.
