Right now, we’re waiting for the Governor to announce his signing of the state budget at 11:00am. Kevin Yamamura of the Sacramento Bee has more details. Part of the question is what authority does the Governor actually have to make additional “blue pencil” cuts, given that this isn’t actually a budget–that was passed in February–but a mid-year budget cuts package.
When we find out about the Governor’s added cuts, we’ll put our first report out via Twitter, at @healthaccess or www.twitter.com/healthaccess. (There’s a Twitter feed on our homepage as well.)
But as always, we’ll try to post information and analysis on this blog as soon as possible.
