With his legacy in the balance, Governor urged to sign compromise budget
SAN FRANCISCO, June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With just 12 hours left until California begins to default on its obligations to seniors, people with disabilities, students and small businesses, health care workers and community activists are gathering in front of the Governor's San Francisco office to demand that Governor Schwarzenegger stop blocking a compromise budget package that meets his own test of "shared sacrifice."
Several events will also take place simultaneously today at the Governor's offices in Fresno, Sacramento, Riverside, Los Angeles and San Diego, building public pressure on Governor Schwarzenegger to support the budget plan passed in the Assembly Sunday and the Senate on Monday.
If the budget plan approved by both houses of the state legislature is not signed by Governor Schwarzenegger by midnight tonight, the state will begin issuing IOUs to seniors, people with disabilities, college students, small businesses and others who are counting on the state to make ends meet.
