Charles Crumpley, editor and publisher of the San Fernando Valley Business Journal, elaborated on a recent study concerning California's infrastructure budget in a recent article on Fox&Hounds. According to a report last year from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, among all states, California spends the lowest percent of its budget on infrastructure. California invested only 3.3 percent of its budget in 2013 on infrastructure, one of only three states that spent less than 4 percent. Texas, the most comparable state in size and population, spent almost twice as much, at 6.4 percent.
