State Budget Negotiations Continue

Governor Schwarzenegger has asked budget negotiators to work through the weekend, saying progress is being made.

Lawmakers have missed the state´s June 15th constitutional deadline for adopting a budget.

But both Democrats and Republicans say they do not want to begin the fiscal year again without a new state spending plan.

Legislative leaders say there are only a handful of issues separating them — more money for state universities — a wage guarantee for home health care workers and a cost of living increase for welfare recipients and pension reforms.
