Podcast: Budget Vows

Comments Off on Podcast: Budget Vows

Promises. Pledges. Assurances. Even vows, at least in the mind of Governor Jerry Brown. All have been discussed this week when it comes to the state's budget mess, and what is -- or isn't -- doable when it comes to resolving it.

This week's Capital Notes Podcast (yes, we're back) recaps a week in which budget conferees began to meet, new promises were made by some Republicans, and the governor joked that he could help move those promises along... if needed.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I also discuss the short time frame left for major budget action... which means any action at all probably happens only at the bitter end.
