Podcast: Kabuki 2011

Comments (1)

The most recent California governor became enamored with describing the annual state budget process as synonymous with the Japanese dance drama kabuki.

Whether or not it's an accurate metaphor, one thing's for sure: the drama didn't leave just because the state changed governors.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we check in on Kabuki 2011... which only intensified after Governor Jerry Brown's State of the State speech.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I also discuss whether the GOP legislative strategy seems to be working, and whether so many moving parts of a budget plan can settle into place by next month.
