San Diego, CA -   Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber (D-San Diego) will convene a budget town hall meeting in her district to discuss how the State Budget impacts San Diegans.  The revised budget proposal assumes $98.1 billion in revenue and $96.4 billion in expenditures and includes a $1.1 billion reserve.  In the next couple of weeks, the Legislature and the Governor will work together to pass a responsible on-time budget by June 15, 2013. Each year State Legislators are tasked with the difficult job of balancing our state budget. This includes defining how much money will be available for public services like education, health and human services, and determining how much we pay in taxes.  Please join Assemblymember Weber for an interactive town hall to discuss your priorities for California's Budget.

Assembly Member Shirley N. Weber is hosting this event.   Dr. Brian R. Sala, Acting Director of the California Research Bureau, will provide an overview of the California State Budget.  Local representatives participating include: Stan Dobbs, Chief Financial Officer of the San Diego Unified School District; Dr. Albert G. Alt, Chief Financial Officer and Mr. Manuel Rubio, Director of Grants and Communications, from the Sweetwater Union High School District; as well as Barbara Jimenez, San Diego County Deputy Director/General Manager for Health and Human Services .
