California Budget Cuts Are Coming

State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, the state’s leading Democrat, says the legislature is willing to go along with nearly all of the more than $20 billion in sweeping cuts proposed by the governor to solve California’s budget crisis. But, according to the Chron, he said Democrats will not agree to Schwarzenegger’s plan to eliminate health care to poor children, grants to college students, and programs that help single mothers find jobs. It’s unclear, however, from the Chron story whether Dems will go along with the governor’s proposal to close most of California’s state parks or his plan to raid the coffers of city and county governments.
