Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

California's current year state budget deficit, $6.3 billion, is by far the largest of any state, according to a new report by the National Conference of State Legislatures, but in relative terms many other state budgets are in worse condition.

California's 2009-10 deficit, as projected by the Legislature's budget analyst, is 7.1 percent of spending, but other states range as high as 18.5 percent in Oklahoma and 18 percent in Arizona, the NCSL survey of states found.

The Legislative Analyst's Office has predicted California faces a $20.7 billion deficit over the next 18 months.
