Over the past few weeks, the Legislature has adopted a budget bill (Assembly Bill 74) and a large number of trailer bills in order to complete the 2019-20 State Budget Package.  Within the past week, the Governor signed the budget bill and most of the budget trailer bills into law.  Two key aspects of the State Budget Package have yet to receive final legislative approval, including enacting the Safe & Affordable Drinking Water Fund, and addressing housing/homelessness.  RCRC’s final summary and analysis of the 2019-20 State Budget Package, The Rural Rundown, can be accessed here.
