California budgets became a thicket of funding shifts, loans and other fiscal maneuvers after the recession gutted the state's tax revenue. Overall, though, state spending would be up 12 percent from pre-recession levels under Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget.

This week's plan includes about $154.9 billion in total spending in 2014-15, which reflects expenditures paid by the general fund ($106.8 billion), special funds (almost $44 billion) and bond money ($4.2 billion.)

In the 2007-08 plan passed by lawmakers before the recession hit, total spending was about $138 billion — $103 billion general fund, $26.7 billion special funds, and $8.4 billion bond funds.

The chart below shows total spending by fiscal year since 2007-08, with sharp drops during the deepest part of the recession.
