You'll find the data above on PDF page 194 in Brown's budget 266-page budget summary, which you can download here. The numbers in the executive section of the table represent employees under gubernatorial authority. The figures include State Fund, CalPERS, CalSTRS and a few other quasi-autonomous groups, but you get the idea.
