The state HAS set up a Task Force study and recommend reparations for slavery descendants who are residents of the state…
The program would have to go to state lawmakers and then on to Governor Newsom…..
Estimates for payouts could be from around $2,000 to $77,000 per person….
That could cost California money it doesn’t have to spend and this whole thing is kinda REAL iffy…..
The state HAD a budget surplus last year….
It has a budget deficit this year…..
California legislators could soon approve billions of dollars in reparations for Black residents, but past restitution programs in the state suggest that those efforts can be challenging to execute.
On Monday, the California Reparations Task Force released the first monetary estimates that Black residents could receive from the state as compensation for the state’s history of slavery and reparations. Amounts could range from $2,300 to $77,000 a person, based on calculations of specific racial harms and the duration of time that an individual has lived in California.
The task force, which is the first of its kind, is expected to vote on the proposal Saturday. If approved, their recommendations would be sent to the state Legislature, which would draft a new bill and head to Governor Gavin Newsom‘s desk if it passes….
