Podcast: Budget Bloodbath

Comments Off

It was a tough week for those who depend on a myriad of state social services, and it may only get worse... as California finds itself in a financial tailspin.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we take a look at some of the cuts proposed (including new proposals to reduce state worker pay). Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also talk about efforts for federal help when it comes to California getting a 'co-signor' on its Wall Street loans.
