The California State Senate Democratic Caucus is holding a two-day retreat in Sacramento next week to dig into Gov. Jerry Brown's budget proposals and discuss the economy and job creation, Sen. Mark Leno, chair of the Senate Budget Committee said today.
"We're bringing in some business leaders to talk about the economy," Leno, D-San Francisco, said.
The Tuesday-Wednesday retreat is an annual private event where policy is discussed, but debate over budget proposals and the economy are pressing needs that will dominate the meeting.
Leno said budget subcommittees will likely begin holding hearings to take public testimony and review details of Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget the week after next.
