Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. released a revised state budget today that provides health care to millions more Californians, pays down $11 billion in debt and fully funds the teachers’ retirement system over time.

“This May Revision is good news for California,” said Governor Brown. “It shows that California can afford to provide health care to many more people, while at the same time paying its debts and shoring up the long-troubled teachers’ retirement system.”
