2x6, I'm sure the energy "crisis" didn't help, but I just looked at the budget numbers for this year (I'm sure past budgets look similar).
The state plans to spend $40 billion on Education (K-12 & higher ed. combined) and $25 billion on Health and Human Services. If I remember correctly, the total budget was along the lines of $76 billion. That doesn't leave much room for anything else. Whatever Davis pissed away on those energy contracts, it is a pittance compared to the above numbers.
