You'd be hard-pressed to find a more suspenseful, high-stakes legislative vote than the one coming up on the California budget deal. The Los Angeles Times has the latest:
Reporting from Sacramento -- Less than 24 hours after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders announced a plan to close California's massive budget deficit, Los Angeles County officials moved to sue the state, a union for government workers said it might strike, and Republicans threatened to back out of the deal over a provision to cut the number of prison inmates by 27,000.
Getting the votes for the deal will be even more difficult for Schwarzenegger and company because of the controversial (to put it mildly) rule that requires a two-thirds majority to pass the budget. If the plan doesn't pass, for the first time I'll seriously start to wonder whether California might default on its debts.
