The budget: A state of confusion


On Sunday the Bee began a seven-day series of editorials on the revised state budget legislators passed last week and the future of state government. We will examine how the new spending plan will affect the services Californians receive from their government. And in each piece, we will also look at what the Legislature did not do, suggesting long-term reforms that could improve service, reduce costs and stabilize the state's fiscal condition. Here is the schedule:

Sunday: Tough choices ahead

Monday: The state work force

Tuesday: Schools

Wednesday: Health and welfare

Thursday: Prisons and higher education

Friday: Taxes and parks

Saturday: Budget reform
