Governor Vetoes “unbalanced” budget

Posted on June 16, 2011


Governor Brown today issued a historic veto today of an “unbalanced” budget issued by Democratic lawmakers.  This veto temporarily spares the judicial branch those additional $150 million in budget cuts.

Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye issued a statement of relief over the Governors veto indicating that this would give her “a chance to demonstrate why the courts would be devastated by additional cuts. ” Maybe it should be a chance (and a very abrupt one at that) to get her AOC fiscal house in order, starting with this year end spending binge that the AOC is currently engaged in.
