While former Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels received much praise for taming his state’s budget, California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has pulled off an arguably bigger feat with his 2013-14 proposed budget, which shows a surplus of $21.5 million. He inherited a $26 billion – that’s with a “b” – deficit when he took office in 2010.

Like Daniels, Brown has overseen some painful cutbacks in social service spending. Unlike Daniels, he is seeking a big boost in spending on schools. Also contrary to the practice in Indiana, Brown wants to change his state’s financing formula so more money goes to the poor districts that need it most.

Among those praising Brown’s efforts is the ranking Republican in the California State Assembly.
