LOS ANGELES COUNTY - Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich issued the following statement after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger delivered his proposed budget for the coming fiscal year:

"Without structural reform to fix California's broken budget system, this budget is a mix of tax schemes and band aids that only delays the inevitable. 

"To address the state's $20 billion deficit and prevent bankruptcy, the following structural reforms are needed to get California back on track: 

* The elimination of unnecessary, and consolidation of state agencies with duplicative responsibilities

* Stop spending above inflation and population growth

* A two-year budget

* A part-time legislature

* An end to term limits

* Bringing our civil service system into the 21st Century."
