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.
THE CHARTS: CUT
Some programs won't be
Some of the proposals made by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state lawmakers over the last few months were not included in the final deal.
* $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
