Governor Newsom signed the first budget bill (SB 154) on Monday, June 27, and the second budget bill (AB 178) last night, June 30. Together, these bills fund the core of the state budget. Provisions include:
- 5% COLA (cost of living adjustment) for UC ANR
- $2.4 million in one-time funds for Nutrition Policy Institute to research “School Meals for All”
- $125 million in one-time funds for UC deferred maintenance, seismic mitigation and energy efficiency projects.
- $185 million in one-time funds to support UC climate change research
The state budget process is not finished and we expect several Budget Trailer Bills to be taken up in August after the Legislature returns from Summer Recess. Stay tuned!
