SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A nearly $263 billion operating budget is on its way to California Gov. Gavin Newsom's desk.

The spending plan approved by lawmakers includes rebates up to $1,100 for most taxpaying adults and a plan for sending 4-year-olds to free kindergarten.

The budget reverses the spending cuts approved last year at the outset of the pandemic. It also sets aside $25 billion in reserves.

Some Republicans have objected to a proposed tax increase on businesses with more than 500 employees to pay for the clean up of hazardous waste sites.

The budget would eliminate the tax on businesses with fewer than 100 workers.
