The state's new budget calls for borrowing $2 billion from cities and counties, and takes another $1.7 billion from local redevelopment agencies this fiscal year. Almost all of these government entities are facing their own deep budget problems. In the Sacramento region, local governments and redevelopment agencies stand to lose $125 million. This database -- drawn from the estimates local government associations are sending to their members to help them plan for cuts -- lets you see how much the state will borrow or take from each local government this fiscal year.

Please note: Some of these lost funds will be offset by A) federal stimulus money and B) the ability of local governments to borrow lost property tax revenue against the state's promised repayment. Special districts are not included. Agencies marked "County of" are county government agencies, and are separate from the other local governments shown. Check The Bee Sunday for a full story.

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
