State Budget Forum

Horizon Institute's State Budget Forum Sheds Expert Light on Community Interests

On February 15, 2011, concerned Los Angeles residents and attendees from more than 20 organizations and businesses participated in the Horizon Institute’s 2011 budget forum “California: The Road to Recovery Begins.” Horizon assembled a broad group of experts to delve into Governor Jerry Brown’s budget and the issues at stake for California in this year’s budget. Jean Ross of the California Budget Project provided an overview of the budget and an insider’s take from Sacramento. She was followed by an array of experts from the worlds of academia, labor, business, and government, each of whom discussed the budget issues on their area of expertise. Presentations and videos of each are posted below.

“Even those of us who follow politics and policy debates closely can get lost in the mindboggling figures,” explained Peter Dreier, Chair of the Horizon Institute. “This forum is a great example of our work at Horizon Institute. We work to cultivate intelligent dialogue and fresh perspectives on the issues that shape California’s future.”

The forum was presented in cooperation with the California Budget Project and hosted by Power PAC in downtown Los Angeles.
