Preliminary numbers show California's personal income tax collections were about $1 billion short of Gov. Jerry Brown's projections during the pivotal month of April.
The analyst says personal income taxes are always volatile, and several years of strong revenue growth have put the state in a good position to manage a drop of this magnitude.
Past fireworks displays at Mount Rushmore National Memorial are the likely source of a pollutant found in water within the site in western South Dakota, according to a government report released Monday.
"The lack of alternative perchlorate sources in the area, such as a military site or agricultural land with applied fertilizers, and the presence of firework debris suggest that past fireworks are the perchlorate source," Galen Hoogestraat, a USGS scientist and the lead author of the report said in a statement.
High concentrations of perchlorate in drinking water can affect the human thyroid gland, but Dr.

Sanders' long-shot bid to clinch Democratic nomination
WASHINGTON (AP) — Trailing significantly in the Democratic primaries, Bernie Sanders wants superdelegates to flip his way and is aiming for a contested national convention in July against front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Sanders says he will campaign until the final primary in the District of Columbia in mid-June and aim to amass as many delegates as possible to influence the platform at the party's convention in Philadelphia.
The Vermont senator faces a daunting deficit against Clinton among pledged delegates from primaries and caucuses as well as among superdelegates, the Democratic elected and party leaders who can support the candidate of their choice and account for 30 percent of the 2,383 delegates needed to win.
Some questions and answers about Sanders' longshot odds for the Democratic nomination:
Clinton leads Sanders among pledged delegates from primaries and caucuses, 1,645 to 1,318, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.
The election contests in May offer a total of 235 delegates, including states such as Oregon, where Sanders believes he can do well.
Democrats award delegates in proportion to the share of the vote, so even the loser gets some.
If Sanders overtakes Clinton in the pledged count, he would still need to win support from at least half of the 714 superdelegates who get a vote at the national convention to reach 2,383.
Barring a major Clinton loss in Indiana, it's mathematically impossible for Sanders to clinch the nomination outright without earning the support of these party officials.
