Rare Praise for Jerry Brown

There isn't a lot to like but when there is give it a thumbs up.

SacBee:

California Gov. Jerry Brown released a revised, $180 billion budget proposal Thursday that closely mirrors his January plan, maintaining a cautious approach amid uncertainty about the direction of the economy and possible federal actions that could hurt the state’s bottom line.
Thursday’s revised plan follows disappointing revenue numbers for April, the state’s biggest tax filing month, but reflects a $2.5 billion uptick in estimated revenue through June 2018 compared to Brown’s January package. It puts $400 million into easing the burden on counties to pay for home-care services while pulling back on an earlier proposal to freeze child-care provider rates. It also links more money for the University of California to the system’s acting on recommendations in a scathing state audit.
 Brown is resisting the usual CA Democrat call to spend on a permanent basis twice as much as shows up as a temporary windfall.  He is also taking a small step towards adequately funding the university system.

And perhaps even more surprising I like his official state portrait.

He has a certain desperate look in his eye. Good art.
House up another hundred.

Here. Raises hand.

Was out watering and fertilizing the roses before it got too hot.
In a few weeks it will be too hot almost all the time.

He'll die happy. Had trout yesterday. Will that keep me alive?

People who drink water die.

Left over doughnuts from mothers day. :)

12.5 oz package fully cooked well drained one strip per burrito. Prolly better for me than the flour taco wrapping. Besides one of these and you generally skip lunch.

It eventually gets that way here, but not until July-August, but there are usually some breaks in the weather. I HAVE seen it go 5 weeks with nearly insufferable weather, but that's mainly because we only have a single window unit AC

Got up early to walk the dog. It's finally light enough at 6 am to do so

Cinco-X said...

Gimme a break... I'm on a diet

Cinco-X said...

Coffee does that to me sometimes

Lawyerliz said...

I hope my mom day dinner didn't cause that.

Getting going finally. New post.
