Release date: August, 2009

The past year has been challenging for California. The state’s record budget deficits forced it to slash many important programs. Our hopes for addressing California’s serious problems with its physical, social, and economic infrastructure – science and math education, healthcare, water and energy supply have been deferred. Science and technology are at the core of California’s economic strength, and the state must use them to remedy the growing shortcomings in our infrastructure.
