Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger called for unity between Democrats and Republicans in the coming weeks on both budget issues and the upcoming special election.
Speaking before the annual California Prayer Breakfast, organized by legislative leaders, the governor argued that partisan attacks should be set aside during this critical time.
Schwarzenegger is expected to decide by Monday whether to call a special election this November.
He has three ballot measures he wants to put before voters that would cap spending, redraw legislative districts and lengthen the probation for public school teachers.
The governor said he wants to negotiate compromise agreements with Democratic leaders on each of his proposals.
He also pointed out that June 15 is the constitutional deadline for adopting a budget.
