Show the Legislature how to balance the budget

June 10, 2010

Next 10, a nonprofit based in the Silicon Valley, does a great job with its online Budget Challenge, which allows anyone to try their hand at balancing the state budget. The challenge offers a variety of cuts and tax increases and explains the background and context of each. Give it a shot and see how well you do at erasing the state’s $19 billion shortfall. You can find the challenge here. The latest version has been updated to reflect changes in the governor’s revised budget.
