Take Action Brief

May 2020

The State Legislature returns this month from a prolonged Spring Recess due to COVID-19, just in time to receive Governor Gavin Newsom’s May Revise to his State Budget proposal. California is facing a historic $54.3 billion budget deficit and there will be no easy decisions in the weeks and months ahead. Be sure to attend CSDA’s first-ever VIRTUAL Special Districts Legislative Days, with a Live Legislative Briefing on May 19, so that your district can learn what will be done for (and to) special districts in the wake of the pandemic. Join together with other districts to make a difference in both Sacramento and Washington D.C. by registering today at legislativedays.csda.net
