(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- Gov. Jerry Brown proposed on Monday some major changes that would aid with balancing the state’s $15.7 billion budget deficit.
Brown called for state employees to work a four-day, 38-hour week in order to make massive spending cuts.
The proposed budget would take effect July 1, and would also cut $1.2 billion from California’s Medi-Cal program and more than $2 billion from education.
The total proposed spending cuts amount to $8.3 billion.
