The state budget for the fiscal year starting July 1 touches on Californian's lives in everything from higher education and taxes to how much their medical providers get paid. Lawmakers will vote on the spending plan today.
Also taking place today is a vote to overhaul the embattled Board of Equalization, the state’s tax agency. The tax board has come under fire after an audit in March that showed that, among other things, it mishandled millions of dollars of tax revenue.
