Apparently, Democratic Gov.-elect Jerry Brown backs Schwarzenegger’s plan to cut billions more from the state. With a $6.1 billion shortfall in the state budget along with the passing of Proposition 22, which prevents about $800 million from local revenues to transfer to the state, Schwarzenegger believes the cuts are inevitable according to The SacBee.
With a Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Schwarzenegger also stated that aid from the federal government was at a loss, backing his statement even as the Democrats continue to push back on his plans.
But if Brown backs Schwarzenegger’s plans for cuts, what does it mean for California’s future? Then again, these notions are only backed by the governator’s words for now.
