Differences Between the Budget and Cash Flow Situations. When the Legislature balances the General Fund budget each year, it must enact measures to ensure that General Fund revenues and expenditures match over the course of the entire year. The cash flow plan, by contrast, focuses on the state meeting its payment obligations in each individual month of the fiscal year. (Bank Deposits) 2009-10 Budget Analysis Series California’s Cash Flow Crisis by Mac Taylor Legislative Analyst January 14, 2009
Will the State “Run Out of Cash?” Technically, the state can never run out of cash because tax and other payments flow into state coffers every day. What may happen in the next few weeks is that available cash may no longer be sufficient to make all state payments that have been budgeted by the Legislature on a timely basis. The State reached this point in early February.
2008-09 Revised Budget Cash Basis – No Cash $47.5 Million State cash resources are exhausted in early February – leaving an estimated State appropriation shortfall to our campus of $47.5 million.
2008-09 Revised Cash Basis Budget Total Shortfall - $52.8 Million Total Revenue - $178.4 Million (Bank Deposits) Total Expenses - $231.2 Million With “Salaries & Benefits” remaining whole, only $11.8 million remains to cover “All Other Operating Expenses” of $64.6 million.
