Fiscal analyst predicts more revenue than Brown’s plan
Sacramento Bee

The Legislature’s nonpartisan fiscal analyst estimated Friday that state revenue through June 2015 would be $2.5 billion higher than what is in Gov. Jerry Brown’s revised budget plan, including $2.2 billion in additional money during the coming budget year.

But the Legislative Analyst’s Office cautions that much of the additional revenue it forecasts would be consumed by larger obligations under the state’s constitutional school-funding guarantee. It also acknowledges that its revenue numbers might turn out to be wrong.
