California: Update on Prop 1A, 1D, and 1E

Yesterday, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger released two budget proposals of cuts to fill a $15 to $21 billion deficit. These are the same cuts he’s proposed before, including cuts to services for immigrants, cuts to hospitals, and cuts to IHSS, SSI/SSP, and CALWORKS. He also announced that he is requesting a federal waiver to make huge reductions to Medi-Cal that are currently not allowed by federal law. You can find a summary of the cuts at the California Budget Project.

The Governor is threatening even more cuts if Proposition 1A doesn’t pass but this is misleading!
