Stand Up for CA: “D” is for deadline

Stand Up for CA 521 canvassJune 15 – The clock is ticking. Legislators have until 11:59 p.m. today to pass a budget, or their checkbooks get lighter.

Both houses have set floor sessions this morning, and Democrats hope to pass all manner of proposals under their majority-vote Plan B.

They aim to erase the remaining $9.6 billion budget deficit through more cuts and fees, plus accounting maneuvers, delayed payments and a resurrected plan to sell and lease back state properties.

As Kevin Yamamura reports in today’s Bee, several of the proposals could face legal challenges.
