Gov. Jerry Brown points to a chart showing how his budget plans will eventually reduce the budget deficit over the next few years as he discusses his revised state budget plan during a Capitol news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, May 14, 2012. Brown said the budget shortfall swelled from $9.2 billion predicted in January to $16 billion, in part because tax collections have not come in as high as expected and lawsuits and federal requirements that have blocked billions of dollars in state cuts.
