Guests:

  • Belva Davis, KQED
  • Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Marisa Lagos, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Amy Standen, KQED's QUEST

Gov. Jerry Brown released his 2012-13 fiscal year budget proposal ahead of schedule after the document was accidentally posted online. The budget was to be unveiled on Tuesday, the constitutional deadline. It includes more than $1 billion in cuts to welfare programs. Brown will also ask voters for $5 billion in education funding with a November tax measure.

It's another fork in the road for California's $99 billion high-speed rail project. A key independent review panel recommended that billions of dollars of voter approved bonds should not be approved by lawmakers. They say the funding isn't secure and the business plan has not been finalized.
