California, We Have a Budget!
After a 93-day impasse, California lawmakers and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger reached an agreement last night on a budget, according to the Sacramento Bee.
The "handshake deal" was reached after a five-hour meeting. "No details were released on how the state plans to bridge a $19 billion deficit, as legislative leaders left the governor’s office in the Capitol," notes the AP as published by CBS.
The 93-day budget-less gap surpassed the record previously set in 2008 at 85 days.
The next step is a floor vote which will probably take place on Thursday; details of the budget will likely be released as part of a public hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
