There's always a flurry of activity in a bazaar (you're a world traveler, right?), a little something for everyone. But in our own California political bazaar these days, things are... well... a bit bizarre.
On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we chat about the week's budget news, and negotiations that seem to be focused on a subset of the $19 billion deficit. Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also discuss the big week of lawsuits and countersuits over plans to lower the paychecks of state workers to minimum wage.
And elsewhere in our busy shopping district of politics, we examine the race for governor and the new poll that shows the contest in a dead heat.
