CA starting to cut budgetgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread
Another state with ugly budget negotiations coming up. The first cuts are easy - wait til July and the legislature still won't have a balanced budget in time for the next fiscal year.
Not a word about how power purchases ate up half our yearly budget. Nothing about how we are going to pay for the measly $13 bil bond measure that is supposed to "cover" almost $50 bil in power contracts. Maybe the governor's "deal" with the utilities and generators will include a way to get out from under those contracts. However, a lot of the deal has to be passed by the legislature and they are acting balky.

First positive step for California is to take Davis OUt of the energy business. The Legislature is our last hope.
