On June 15, 2020, the California Legislature passed its version of a state budget to meet its constitutionally required responsibility, acknowledging it was still negotiating with Gov. Gavin Newsom on how to close a projected $54 billion deficit created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Legislative leaders have indicated that they believe a final agreement with the governor will be reached before the Legislature adjourns to summer recess and before the start of the new fiscal year on July 1.

To learn more, we invite you to listen in on this recorded session to hear Edgar Cabral, deputy legislative analyst with the California Legislative Analyst's Office, present:

 - The status of the state's economic condition,

 - Latest updates on the 2020-21 state budget process, and
