California misses budget deadline for 17th time
SACRAMENTO, CA (KGO) -- Wednesday marks the end of another fiscal year and once again the state legislature will miss its constitutional deadline to approve a balanced budget.
This marks the 17th time in the last two decades that California's political leaders have missed the budget deadline.
Lawmakers are currently facing a $19 billion state deficit.
Democrats in the assembly and Senate are finalizing their proposals and expect to send a joint version of it to the governor next week.
