Newsom said such measures were meant to ensure that the state remains on sound fiscal footing to "make the California dream available to all".
With last year's approved budget of $139 billion, Brown was able to secure a $15 billion surplus in addition to the $15 billion already in the state's rainy day fund.

And he plans to propose a significant expansion of California's paid leave program, which allows new parents to receive a portion of their paycheck while away from work following the birth or adoption of a child. Newsom wants to eventually offer six months of leave to be split between the parents, though his initial budget will include a smaller step in that direction.
California now replaces a portion of wages for six weeks for new parents, and birth mothers can take an additional six weeks of disability leave. It's unclear how Newsom would pay for a full six-month program.
