GOP Lawmakers To Pay The Price For Crossing Party Lines

Sacramento, CA — The California Republican Party has approved a measure reprimanding six GOP lawmakers who voted for the largest tax increase in state history.

The measure to deny the six party funding for the 2010 election was approved Sunday by delegates during the party’s convention in Sacramento. Three lawmakers each from the Senate and Assembly broke ranks last week to give Democrats and Gov. Schwarzenegger the necessary votes for passing a compromise budget solution to the state’s projected $42 billion shortfall.

Two of the senators include former Minority Leader Dave Cogdill and Able Maldonado who cast the deciding vote.
