Podcast: Happy Deficit To All

Comments Off

Tis the season to be... squabbling about a solution to California's fiscal crisis.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we look back at a very busy week on the state budget front. From competing proposals to defeated bills, controversial solutions, and the threats of Governor Schwarzenegger to veto the Democratic plan... and lay off state workers.

Phew.

Capitol Weekly editor Anthony York and I check in for what that week might mean in terms of an eventual deal, and whose interests might be left out when it's all said and done.

And yes, the podcast is actually a few days late; the flurry of events at week's end pushed our weekly chat into Monday.
