Saving The California Dream

California's Stellar Economic Growth

Posted: Updated:

It's been a good week for California.

Governor Brown got his budget and California had its best year of economic growth since 2007.

The state's economy grew much faster than the national average, according to a new report by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. California was second only to Texas.

In addition, California's lawmakers passed the main budget bill today. 

Although some Republican lawmakers said they were concerned the budget didn't pay down enough debt.

"There are so many things that are off the books," said Asm. Tim Donnelly (R-San Bernardino). "We're in arrears to the Federal government for our unemployment payments…. There's nothing in here to encourage business to come back and create jobs."

But Asm. Bob Blumenfield (D-Woodland Hills) disagreed.

"We've come a long way and it's been a hard-fought battle. We have clawed our way to fiscal responsibility."

Fox 11 investigative producer Heidi Cuda has this report.
