Lawmakers Vow To Keep Up Budget Talks
No stopping in sight until agreements are reached
Republican and Democrat legislative leaders continued to make progress Wednesday in resolving the remaining differences that have held up passage of a state budget plan for the 2007-08 fiscal year.
Though no agreement was reached during the day’s meetings, the leaders pledged to continue their negotiations and work through the outstanding issues until a final budget agreement between the parties is reached.
“While we have not yet resolved all of the our differences, I am pleased by the progress we have made so far in our budget negotiations, and am confident that we will soon be able to reach agreement on a budget that makes sense for California,” said Assembly Republican Leader Mike Villines, of Fresno.
