Podcast: Hot August Nights

Comments Off on Podcast: Hot August Nights

The temperature outside the state Capitol these days is less important than the temperature inside, as the budget and the final push on legislation leave everyone sweating it out.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we check in on the progress -- or lack thereof -- in sealing a deal on the state budget. We also run down some of the more interesting end-of-session maneuvers on legislation, which has until Tuesday to either make it to the governor's desk, or die an ignominious death.

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also take the temperature of the race for governor, where both sides came out swinging this week, just in time for Labor Day.

Note: Your friendly neighborhood radio blogger will be absent for the next 9 days, heading east for a large family gathering. But my colleagues at KQED News will keep you up-to-date should big things happen. Look for bloggings, podcasting, and the oh-so-lovable tweets to resume just after the holiday. --JM
