The latest on California politics and government

Looking for more budget charts and graphs? You don't have to wait long.

Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor is holding a press conference this afternoon to present his office's latest report, titled rather succinctly, "Overview of the Governor's Budget."

The report will be available on the LAO's website at 11:30 a.m. The press conference is set for 1:30 p.m.

Just in time: The budget committees in both the Senate and the Assembly are scheduled to start considering Brown's proposal tomorrow.

As colleague Kevin Yamamura reports, Republicans are already questioning Gov. Jerry Brown's characterization that his plan relies on half cuts and half taxes.

And education officials are mulling what the proposal means for K-12 schools.
