Golden State Budget Deal Remains Elusive


Posted by Patrick Gleason on Wednesday, February 11th, 2009, 5:06 PM PERMALINK


Budget negotiations continue in Sacramento.  Last week word got out that a budget vote was likely to come sometime this week.

But after a weekend of Big 5 negotiations, a vote has yet to be announced.  Stay tuned for more budget updates throughout the week.

Staying on the subject of California's budget, Democrat lawmakers have repeatedly spread misinformation on the state's overspending problem and the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which ATR sponsors and all but one Republican lawmaker in California have signed.  Sen. Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) recently went so far as to send a letter to all of her constituents repeating these falsehoods and pro-tax hike propaganda.

The Flash Report, the foremost source for California political news, recently published ATR's official response - click here to read it.

ATR's Patrick Gleason recently appeared on Los Angeles area station KFI 640 AM's John and Ken Show to discuss the budget impasse.  Click here to listen to the interview - Gleason comes on at the 8 minute mark.
