RCRC’S Rural Rundown of the Governor's 2018-19 Budget

Sacramento, CA...On Wednesday, the Brown Administration released details of the Governor’s 2018-19 proposed Budget.  RCRC’s governmental affairs team reviewed the proposal, and developed The Rural Rundown, an in-depth look at the Governor’s 2018-19 proposed Budget, its implications for member counties, details of RCRC’s advocacy efforts on specific issue items and an insider perspective into the reasoning and rationale behind elements of the proposal.

Key Issues/Changes for RCRC Member Counties:
  • Continues to provide $644,000 for the State’s Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) Program for 2018-19;
  • Provides $134 million in State support for funding a program to modernize county voting systems;
  • Includes new funding and creates programs to address a broad spectrum of wildfire response and recovery issues in light of the devastating 2017 wildfire season, including backfill of property tax revenue losses for counties, cities and special districts resulting from the fires; and,
  • Maintains the existing funding agreement for IHSS that was created in the 2017-18 State Budget; however, a small increase is being provided by the state to address paid sick leave for IHSS providers.
The Rural Rundown can be accessed here.

Democratic showing his bigotry

Oh great, we have a Bigot among us, spewing hate from the democratic party. Congratulations for showing what a bigot you are
and showing your party's true self.
sic sic

* bigotry ~ A person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.
* Discriminates on the basis of a person's ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, etc
* Blinkered, narrow-mindedness, usually also very intolerant and unable to see anyone else's point of view.
Being a Bigot (that would be you) also includes the following ~
* Racists, sexists, religious fanatics, fashion snobs, etc

I guess you should look in the mirror when pointing your finger,but use caution, the image won't be pretty.

Turn that frown, upside down, mean and angry person

Have a wonderful day prepared for the rain is coming
