State Can’t Pay Its Bills
California won´t be able to pay its bills and may have to borrow as much as eight billion dollars next year. That´s according to state Controller Kathleen Connell.
Connell tracks the state´s cash flow. She said yesterday she expects the state can borrow using a revenue anticipation note, a type of short-term loan that is repaid during the same year it is issued.
The controller said the budget that Davis proposed this month overestimates the amount of tax money flowing to Sacramento by about one-point-four billion dollars.
