General Government
9658 Budget Stabilization Account

Proposition 2, approved by voters in November 2014, replaces the Proposition 58 (2004) version of the Budget Stabilization Account (BSA) to build a stronger "rainy day" reserve while requiring accelerated debt pay down.

Beginning with the 2015-16 fiscal year, Proposition 2 requires a transfer from the General Fund to the BSA by October 1 of each year. This transfer includes fifty percent of the sum of 1.5 percent of estimated General Fund revenues and the amount of capital gains revenues over 8 percent of General Fund tax proceeds that is not required to fund Proposition 98.

  • Supplemental Transfer to the Rainy Day Fund

    The Budget includes a $2 billion transfer from the General Fund to the Budget Stabilization Account in addition to the current projected amounts required by Section 20 of Article XVI of the California Constitution. In total, the $3.3 billion transfer brings the Rainy Day fund to $6.7 billion in 2016-17, or 54 percent of its maximum. In the event the amounts required to be transferred for 2015-16 and 2016-17 exceed the estimate in the Governor's Budget (as part of the Proposition 2 "true up" process), this supplemental transfer shall be first applied towards meeting the additional requirement.
