$28 Billion

The LAO is suggesting there will be a $28 billion budget shortfall over the next 20 months:

We concur with the administration’s assessment that the state’s struggling economy signals a major reduction in expected revenues. Combined with rising state expenses, we project that the state will need $27.8 billion in budget solutions over the next 20 months. The state’s revenue collapse is so dramatic and the underlying economic factors are so weak that we forecast huge budget shortfalls through 2013?14 absent corrective action. From 2010?11 through 2013?14, we project annual shortfalls that are consistently in the range of $22 billion.
