State Budget Negotiations At An Impasse
Sacramento, CA — Wednesday state budget negotiations closed in a stalemate at 10pm.
There is still no agreement over permanent cuts to health and welfare programs. In addition there is a disagreement over education funding and borrowing from local governments.
And according to Governor Schwarzenegger’s spokesman Aaron McLear, “The Democrats are unwilling to make sufficient cuts to create a resreve that is desperately needed in this budget.”
