Gov. Schwarzenegger is skipping the press conference thing and replacing it with a big whoop-de-doo on the east steps of the Capitol when he finally signs the state's budget plan, a whole 85 days late, later this morning (this means the state can finally pay its bills that have been piling up). But the shindig isn't just about the budget, he will be rounding up support for Proposition 11, a redistricting plan that will be on November's ballot. In an e-mail blast, The Sacramento Bee notes that this will otherwise be a quiet week for the Governor as he eight days to act on 875 bills. Now, that's a lot of signing.
