Comments Off

Pick your analogy... an impression of the gamesmanship now being played, and where where things stand inside the state Capitol on resolving California's $20+ billion budget deficit. For now, they're both valid.

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also discuss what might happen next... and how long state finances can hold up while negotiations continue.
