Budget and COLA Update!!

The California Legislature approved a budget yesterday that Governor Newsom is not ready to sign, however the budget allows the legislature to meet the statutory June 15 deadline to avoid loss of pay. While few details have been released thus far, one of the major sticking points is the additional ongoing funding the legislature wants to allocate to the LCFF. This extra 3.0% will not be applied to CAEP funding as the budget language reads today. According to news sources, the governor has no interest in committing to additional ongoing funding to education based on the recent national economic news – inflation has increased further, much of which is due to the recent daily records set by gasoline costs, as well as huge increases in food and electricity.

Neil Kelly advised me earlier today that our current COLA still stands at 6.56% over the current year allocation. Keep a close eye on budget negotiations. We also anticipate hearing from the adult education professional organizations.

CAEP COLA Update!

The earlier post regarding the budget approved by the Legislature yesterday may not be entirely accurate. It appears that the legislature has approved additional funding for education (LCFF) but has not included CAEP within that increase. A link to the disagreements between the governor and the legislature follows: KPBS California Budget Update .

CAEP COLA!

During the California State Level Update today, Carolyn Zachary announced that the state budget sent to the governor by the legislature did NOT contain the additional COLA for CAEP funding. The budget was submitted in order to meet the June 15 statute deadline, but negotiations will ensue now to boost the CAEP COLA to match the increased COLA going to LCFF. Perhaps we will hear more soon from the professional organizations.

FURTHER UPDATE — AS OF 11:37 AM IT APPEARS THAT THE ABOVE NEWS MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY ACCURATE. SEE LATEST POST FOR ADDITIONAL BUDGET INFORMATION.
