“HOUSTON, WE HAVE A BUDGET” …unfortunately it’s one for California.

LA Times: ‘The plan is not yet formally released’  …but they have a chart of the cuts (kids’ health insurance) & a chart of the not cuts (kids’ health insurance not eliminated!). No mention of the Gov’s proposal to euthanize pound animals sooner.





Some programs won't be cut eliminated

Some of the proposals made by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state lawmakers over the last few months were not included in the final deal.

Among them:
* $1.50 per pack tax on cigarettes
* 9.9% tax on oil extraction
* $15 annual vehicle fee hike
* Elimination of CalWorks program
* Elimination of CalGrants for college students
* Elimination of Healthy Families insurance for children
* Mass closure of state parks
