What California Might Get from the Federal Stimulus Package

Hosted by

Bipartisanship didn't work on Capitol Hill, but the massive stimulus bill passed anyway, as we hear on our rebroadcast of today's To the Point. As the budget stalemate continues, layoff notices went out to state workers today and construction projects were shut down. Even if the political deadlock breaks, California's condition is likely to get worse. Any budget deal worked out in Sacramento will have to be ratified by the voters. Will they agree to a spending cap and reverse themselves on school funding, mental health, and the state lottery?
