CA Fwd has released the first chapter of “Financing the Future: How will California pay for tomorrow?“ — exploring some of the investments that California must make to support sustainable, prosperous and equitable growth, and the options for financing those priorities.
Continuing CA Fwd’s mission to be a catalyst for meaningful changes in the way public decisions are made, the papers are intended to inform and encourage a broad civic conversation about California’s revenue system and changes that would provide adequate and stable revenue.
Created in partnership with the California Economic Summit, the first chapter focuses on Proposition 30, the temporary taxes approved by voters in 2012. In the next two chapters, CA Fwd will examine where and how additional investment could be made—and the options for making California’s revenue system stable, adequate, and equitable.
Keep an eye out for the next two chapters of Financing the Future in the coming weeks.
