Charter Currents: Legislature Approves Budget “Clean-Up” Bill Containing Fixes and More LCFF Funding

The Legislature approved AB 185 yesterday, a “clean-up” bill that makes numerous changes to the state’s 2022-23 budget and the education finance trailer bills. The 194-page measure is long on words, but relatively short on substance, especially in comparison to last year’s extensive clean-up bill. It boosts LCFF funding a bit further, partially clarifies some key terms, and includes myriad other tweaks. We presume the bill reflects a negotiated consensus with the Governor and that he will sign it into law soon.
