Last year around this time NCG toyed with the idea of canceling its annual programs on the California state budget for lack of interest. What a difference a year makes.

Our partners at the California Budget and Policy Center are teaming up again with the session A Case of Uncertainty-The 2017 California State Budget-A California Policy Forum Program for members explaining how the projected shortfall plays out across the state. Learn more and register.
This budget roundup, Highlights from the California Governor's Budget by Philanthropy California’s Seyron Foo, highlights issues of importance to NCG’s members, from criminal justice reform to the environment.
