A report by the Legislative Analyst's Office projects the state budget will fall short by almost $4 billion this year, which could lead to more cuts to public education, libraries and social service programs. What's at stake for California, where implementation of the Affordable Care Act has already begun, now that the U.S. Supreme Court will review President Obama's health-care reform law?
