On Wednesday night, former Contra Costa Supervisor Sunne McPeak and current Berkeley Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner discussed some of their ideas for improving the current California state budget crisis. The discussion, which was titled â€śA Conversation about Californiaâ€™s Future,â€ť was held at the Lafayette War Veterans Memorial Building.
McPeak and Skinner’s key point was that the process for how a budget is created must first be fixed. They suggested installing a two-year budget and making revenue projections as far as five years in advance.
Another key point was that new projects involving spending must include their funding source before being approved.
