still be passed to prevent further cuts and future debt. >> $20 billion next year. so that's back into the hole again. and i think that's bad. i think that's bad in the country, it's bad in california. i want to see balanced honest budgeting and that's what i'm proposing. >> this is the place to start. >> reporter: while initially indicating the revised budget is a step in the right direction, republican leaders still show no signs of moving on the tax issue. >> in terms of compromising on tax increases, i don't see any place to go there. >> reporter: talk like that from brown's key opponent on the opposite side of the aisle doesn't give one much hope that the two sides can reach an agreement. still, brown is optimistic a budget can be passed by june 15th. at the state capitol in sacramento, dan customerren, kron4 news. >> we continue our budget coverage tonight. we see how the budget uncertainty is creating tension
at one bay area school district. >> reporter: these are trying times for steve staves. staves is the superintendent of the school district. he's encouraged by the fact that governor brown's revised budget proposal includes $3 billion more funding for k-12 but without concrete answers, he must prepare and present a budget for his school board without knowing how much state funding he's getting. he says he'll have to present the board with three scenarios, a best-case scenario that cuts his budget by $9 million. this is another, which has cus between 9 and $14 million and a worst-case scenario that cuts more than $14 million. the worst-case scenario would play out if the tax increases are not extended. but he is thinking about that, hoping he does not have to cut things like after-school sports and support programs and
decrease teacher salaries. dozens of santa clara teachers already got pink slips. he hopes for the best but prepares for the worst. as he put it, in my 46 years in education, this is the absolute worst it has been. kron4 news. we have the governor's entire revised budget on our website, just head to www.kron4.com and click on the news links. a live look outside from thegolden gate bridge this evening. we're continuing to see showers through parts of the bay area. let's take a look at some of our rainfall totals this evening. santa rosa nearly .5 inches of rain this evening for the past six hours. napa, .33 inches of rain, .25 inches in oakland, and .20 inches in mill valley and less down the line. most places only saw a few hundredths. here's a look at what's going on in the storm track, rain still going in our inland valley. walnut creek still getting a little bit of rain at this
