From the SacBee: Schwarzenegger, lawmakers reach state budget agreement

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders agreed Monday to balance Californias $26 billion deficit ... The proposal includes spending cuts to programs ranging from schools to welfare-to-work to prisons. It takes money from local governments, including borrowing $2 billion that the state will repay starting in 2013 and taking gas taxes that normally go toward local road projects.
