The Senator Reports July 10th, 2008

Missing the July 1st budget deadline…again…
By Senator Mark Wyland (R-Carlsbad)

As irresponsible as it may be to let a deadline fly, it's quite the norm for the Legislature when budget season comes around. In the past 20 years, an on time budget has been enacted only four times-1993, 1999, 2000 and 2006. 2008 marks no exception. As the July 1st budget deadline has come and gone, California taxpayers are still left without the balanced budget they deserve.

This year will present some of the most difficult decisions the Legislature has ever faced and everyone has different opinions on how to dig California out of a $15 billion hole. Republicans are willing to make some tough cuts, Democrats have proposed upwards of $11 billion in new taxes and the Governor wants to borrow money against future state lottery sales.

As you can see, this might be the beginning of a very long summer for the Legislature.
