Antonovich calls state budget "raw deal"

Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich issued the following statement on the announcement of a state budget deal today.

"What was missing was a comprehensive package of structural reforms including eliminating or consolidating overlapping departments and high-paying political commissions -- limiting stipends for members of necessary commissions to $150 per meeting.

California Legislature approves budget bill

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The California Legislature passed a budget early today to help close a $42 billion deficit, ending an epic impasse that involved several all-night sessions and threatened to throw thousands of state employees out of work.

Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger praised the bill, passed by the Democratic-controlled Senate and Assembly. He came out of his office after the budget vote and disconnected a large deficit clock counting the number of days - 106 as of Thursday - that the Legislature had failed to act since he declared a special session to deal with the state's fiscal problems.
