    California Governor Jerry Brown made a trip to San Diego Friday to sign the one-time 2014-2015 state budget, completing his work at the City Administration Building downtown.

    Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins and Senate President Pro-Tem Darrell Steinberg also attended the signing, as well as Assemblymember Nancy Skinner and Senator Mark Leno.

    Brown’s budget is designed to pay down debt, bring stability to the teachers’ pension system, build a reliable “Rainy Day Fund” for the state of California and directs additional funding for local schools and health care.

    “This on-time budget provides for today and saves for the future,” Brown said in a statement released by his office Friday. “We’re paying off the state’s credit card, saving for the next rainy day and fixing the broken teachers’ retirement system.”

    After the signing in San Diego, Brown will travel to Los Angeles to join members of the California Latino Legislative Caucus for a community celebration in recognition of legislation signed last year to help workers and immigrants in California. That event takes place at Los Angeles’ Pico House on Main Street.
