When Gov. Jerry Brown was asked last week about the reliability of his revenue estimates, which came in higher than he initially projected, Brown responded that while revenue may be out-performing his expectations, costs have come in higher than expected, too.

“Expenditures meet the revenues almost precisely,” he said. But according to the Legislature’s nonpartisan fiscal analyst, Brown not only continues to underestimate revenue, but may be overestimating costs, as well.
