Budget Deal Struggles through State Assembly

After being approved by the California State Senate earlier today, a plan to close the state's $26 billion budget deficit struggles its way through the assembly. The legislative package of $31 billion includes measures to borrow billions from cities and counties, a plan that is controversial with members of both parties.
