Podcast: Tick, Tick, Tick

Comments (2)

That ticking sound is getting louder.

For lawmakers inside the state Capitol, it's the ticking of the minutes, hours, and days since the fiscal year began without a budget.

In the race for governor, it's the ticking down of the clock until November 2... and a race that's now fully engaged by both major party nominees.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we once again check on the (seemingly never-ending) negotiations over a new state budget, now 72 days overdue. Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also assess the start of the fall campaign between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown, with Brown's recent kickoff of a full-scale battle.
