No Budget Vote Thursday After All

Wednesday, March 9, 2011
Put away those toothbrushes; stuff those sleeping bags back into their covers.  There won't be any late-night budget session Thursday.
March 10th marks Governor Brown's self-imposed deadline to reach a budget deal.  But late Wednesday afternoon, the governor asked legislative leaders to hold off for a bit - though how long is unclear.  He wants to continue what he calls "positive and productive" talks with lawmakers "on both sides of the aisle."  The governor has been meeting with five Republican Senators to discuss pension and regulatory reforms and a spending cap.
The office of Senate Democratic Leader Darrell Steinberg says he'll honor the governor's request for a delay.
