Dear LACCD Colleagues

Last Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom released his updated budget proposal, commonly known as the May Revision for the 2023-24 fiscal year.  The Governor's January budget proposal was already austere, and the updated budget proposal continues a conservative approach to budgeting.  With tax returns in many counties not due until October, this budget takes a cautious approach.   This May Revision proposal lowers the General Fund tax revenue estimates for 2021-22, 2022-23, and the budget year 2023-24.  This, in turn, reduces the Proposition 98 Guarantee, which determines the funding level for K-12 schools and community colleges. This May Revision will kick off budget negotiations between the Legislature and the Administration, as the Legislature must approve a final budget by June 15.
