State Budget, Building Rainy Day Fund?

We haven’t heard that strategy from state government executive leadership for awhile and it is heartening to hear, http://blogs.sacbee.com/capitolalertlatest/2014/01/jerry-brown-pledges-caution-despite-budget-surplus.html .

We hope Governor Brown carries this idea over to saving actual rain water during the above average rainy seasons for just such a dry year as we are now apparently entering.

Planning to prepare for the future is one of the key elements of effective public administration and when that planning includes the safety of the public, either through having enough police, prisons, and rehabilitation programs; or having an adequate water and road infrastructure to produce the food and transportation needed for public health, it is absolutely essential.
