California Big 5 reach tentative budget agreement
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- State lawmakers have moved one big step closer to passing a budget -- 85-days after it was due.
Leaders of the state senate and assembly met with Governor Schwarzenegger in southern California. After six hours of discussions, they reached what they call a "framework" for a potential solution to close California's $19 billion budget gap.
The governor's spokesman says it does call for large spending cuts, but no other details were available.
A complete agreement should be worked out by Monday.
