Panic is setting in,
Purely anecdotal, but in southern Sonoma county rents seem to be pretty stable. I would say they have increased slightly over the last few years. There seem to be more single family homes available for rent then there were 4 years ago when I was looking for a rental. Given the areas these are located in I would guess quite a few were foreclosures that are now being rented.

State may close prevailing wage gap for charter cities,
I pay my guys a good wage with great benefits and retirement plan.
I am curious, what do your open shop bare labor costs add up to per hour? Wages plus benefits ( health and retirement) for say a carpenter but not including FICA work comp etc.

Big taxes and big spending cuts give California a budget surplus - Feb. 7, 2013,
The track record in this type of thing is poor, across the board. I'm speaking about government at all levels in all locations.
True, the tendency is to project a rosy amount of revenue. Given the somewhat improving CA economy and tax changes I would guess they will be in the ball park. A budget is just that, it is a projection and can't be written in stone on the revenue side.
Whether their projections are on target or not the situation is far more in "balance" then it has been. You can disagree on how they got there but the budget situation in CA under Jerry Brown has been stabilized... for a while.
