GOP On Gov. Brown's Proposed Budget: We Like It

Posted: Updated:

It might be a Kumbaya moment in Sacramento as some Republican leaders are applauding Governor Brown's proposed budget.

With a Democratic supermajority in the California legislature, Brown doesn't really need Republican support on his proposed budget.

But Fox 11 investigative producer Heidi Cuda reports that many Republican leaders say they're pleased with his promise of fiscal restraint and happy to see dollars going back into our classrooms.

Although California schools are getting less than promised under Prop 30, they will be receiving nearly three billion dollars in additional funding for the next fiscal year.

State employees will receive an average pay and benefits increase of about three thousand dollars.

And the governor's proposal no longer calls for any furlough days.

This all part of union negotiations that took place three years ago on behalf of about 200,000 state employees.

It's the first budget in several years that doesn't call for state job and salary cuts
