Improving Economy No Match For Runaway Spenders

A new report released today by the state Legislature´s budget analyst says an improving economy is no match for runaway spending by state agencies.

The report also says lawmakers will face a budget deficit next year of $6.7 billion.

A variety of one-time solutions and loans used to paper over this year´s budget will expire at the end of June.

That will leave the Legislature and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger with a big gap to fill and hard choices to make.
