CALIFORNIA - Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed a $213.5 billion state government spending plan with efforts to boost spending on homelessness, wildfire prevention and K-12 education.

The revised plan is up $4.5 billion from his first spending plan released in January.

Newsom's new plan includes a $21.5 billion surplus that is unchanged from January but remains the largest surplus in at least 20 years.

The proposal now goes to state lawmakers, who must pass a budget by June 15 or lose pay.

Newsom also added $40 million to deal with wildfires and natural disasters.

See a full breakdown of the proposed spending below.
