It’s crunch time in California. According to state law, lawmakers only have a week left to wrestle a budget over to the governor’s desk, and they just started tackling the beast. The legislature mostly held off on making difficult budget decisions on closing the state’s $16 billion deficit, waiting for Tuesday’s primary election to play out. Now they have a very short window to battle over Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed $91.4 billion budget. State law says the budget should be passed by June 15. The new fiscal year starts July 1.
