Monday, February 15, 2010
State lawmakers have a busy week ahead as they return from the holiday weekend. 

Tuesday, (2.16)  they’ll be working on a plan to plug the state’s six-billion dollar budget hole.

Lawmakers are giving more attention to the state’s financial crisis now that Republican State Senator Abel Maldonado’s confirmation for Lieutenant Governor has been postponed.

Committee hearings on Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposed budget fix are scheduled this week (Tuesday) in the Senate. 

It’s part of a special legislative session on the budget the governor called last month. 

According to the latest state estimates, California lacks more than six-billion dollars needed to pay for some basic services in the current fiscal year. 

And, experts are expecting another 14-billion dollar cash shortage in the next budget cycle that starts in July.   

Friday is the deadline for lawmakers to introduce bills during this session.
