Legislative Report December 2007

Legislative Gavel on Laptop

by Rick Rollens – Consultant for CALBIA

The Legislature will reconvene from its recess on January 7.

The $14 billion State Budget deficit will dominate Sacramento for months to come. The Governor will release his proposed 2008-2009 Budget on January 10.

It is expected to contain much pain, and little relief.

Our efforts continue in a positive direction with the Schwarzeneger Administration to bring CALBIA’s Brian Injury Initiatives to reality. There will be challenges, but we continue to receive positive comments and actions from those within the Administration and Legislature. Meetings will continue in January between CALBIA and the Administration on our proposals while at the same time exploring other opportunities in the Legislative process.
