IOUs, state spending cuts, higher taxes and layoffs are just some of the harsh realities of the California state budget. On May 19th, residents will have their say about approving some of the budget details in a special statewide referendum, but what does it mean for the future? Who wins, and who loses? What jobs will be created? A panel of experts will assess the state’s challenges and lay out the details of the budget plan.
