Lawmaker Reaction to Budget Deficit California lawmakers are reacting differently to Governor Jerry Brown's announcement that the state's budget deficit for 2012-2013 has grown from $9 billion to $16 billion. Many Democratic lawmakers are urging the state to close tax loopholes and levy new taxes to offset the unavoidable cuts while many Republicans are saying the state needs to stop overspending, not impose new taxes.  We'll speak with Senate Budget Chair, Mark Leno D-San Francisco, and Senate Budget Vice Chair, Bill Emmerson R-Riverside, about their differing views on the causes and solutions for the soaring deficit.
