Podcast: Happy New Year

Comments Off on Podcast: Happy New Year

Your idea of a fun day in July may be sitting poolside with a cold drink. But in Sacramento, it's celebrating the passage of time... in fiscal terms, that is.

And this year, unlike so many others, the budget is a done deal.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we examine all the ups and downs of a very busy week in the state budget saga, from a unified Democratic front to a quick vote, line-item vetoes, and -- of course -- post-budget political sniping.

Kevin Yamamura of the Sacramento Bee and I also discuss what's next. Hey, the next fiscal countdown is only 51 weeks away!
