On September 2, 1992, Governor Wilson signed into law the 1992 Budget Act and related legislation. The $57.4 billion budget package ended a period of more than two months during which the state government operated without a budget. In addition to the Budget Act itself, the budget package includes 23 other measures that make the law changes necessary to achieve budgeted savings. This implementing legislation makes a wide variety of significant changes that affect most of the state’s major programs as well as state assistance to schools and local governments. This report is part of a series that highlights the impacts of the budget package.
