No Budget Yet

There’s no budget, but negotiations are scheduled to continue tomorrow. This story in the San Jose Mercury leads me to believe we’re still a couple of days away from an agreement, and likely at least a week from a vote.

This poses a dilemma for Governor Schwarzenegger: what to do with all the bills the legislature approved this year. Will he sign anything on or before September 30th (Thursday), or will he veto everything if there’s no budget? Governor Schwarzenegger isn’t commenting at all, but suspicions among individuals attending the CSEA Board meeting this past weekend is that one reason for the movement this past week was a likely veiled threat from Governor Schwarzenegger: Give me a budget that I like or all of your bills will be vetoed.
