6:36 pm
>> we're talking a possible shortfall of billions of dollars. and now the governor says he's vetoing some bills to ensure the state does not spend money. it does not have. after veto after veto. the governor sending back more than 25 bills without his signature bills on all kinds of matters from investments and reproductive health care, community clinics to health insurance subsidies to mandate that kindergarten and more than half of newsom's veto messages. he wrote the same exact line indicating california will not take in as much revenue this year as previously thought. coach with our state facing lower than expected revenues over the first few months of this fiscal year. it is important to remain disciplined. what we've seen is that state tax revenues have come in. >> several billion lower than what the function was. panic as the non-partisan legislative analyst for the state of california. >> as of now, the legislative analyst's office or for short says there's a 70% chance the states he's a budget shortfall of about 5 to 7 billion dollars by the end of the fiscal year. next summer.

>> many california would come up short of the 223 billion dollars in tax revenue originally anticipated 5 to would be a relatively >> small portion of that. but of course, shortfall could be substantially larger than that. >> while exact shortfall, predictions remain up in the air. the california department of finance says what we do know is clear just in the last 3 months alone, california already has seen anticipated tax revenue come up short by more than 4 billion dollars. but why the loss in revenue? experts say is the stock market loses ground interest rate increase in inflation, stays high. california's top earners will likely rake in less money. the department of finance says those top earners who usually make at least $500,000 per year provide nearly half the income tax revenue for the state. less money for those earners means less tax revenue for california. that is why the governor. >> in his veto message is recently has been focused on making sure that we maintain
6:38 pm
budget resiliency and then we don't all recommit ourselves to spending pattern that can be sustained in the next 6.12, or 18 months. >> and we should have more concrete numbers this november. that's when the legislative analyst's office is expected to come out with the state's fiscal outlook report reporting here at the california state capitol eytan wallace kron. 4 news. >> next at 6, the latest on the drama between elon musk and twitter as pretrial arguments get underway.

more aid to ukraine. but the bill also reforms the permitting process for energy projects and that provision is a big sticking point for some lawmakers. >> the poison pill is a funny attempt to address an important topic. a permit or 4. we have to have a real permitting reform. what i don't understand is this is an important issue. why don't we have a separate vote? why would be included in the cr? >> the funding bill needs the support of at least 60 senators. so there has to be some bipartisan compromise to avoid a shutdown. white house is urging lawmakers to find a solution. coming up next in sports, soccer or football comes to santa clara and fans are pumped up to watch mexico take on columbia. >> live report from levi stadium coming up.
