Podcast: School Daze

Comments Off

We were all educated over these past few days in the ways of budget politics. Pun fully intended, of course.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we examine the status of sputtering budget talks (at least, as of our taping on late Thursday afternoon). Most notably, the battle over Proposition 98 -- Test 1, maintenance factor, you know you love it.

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also discuss the likelihood that whatever deficit deal is struck, it's likely to again include those little maneuvers (some would call them gimmicks) that help close the final distance.
