California Leaders Split over Voter Props

April 27, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Efforts by Governor Schwarzenegger to win voter approval of six budget measures grew more difficult this past weekend. A sharply split state Democratic Party declined to back three of the propositions. After a heated debate, delegates narrowly voted to remain neutral on proposition "1-A", which would restrain state spending and extend a series of tax increases.

They endorsed other propositions that would secure education funds and authorize billions of dollars in borrowing, including proposition "1-C" which would borrow money against future state lottery earnings.

California's special election will be held in less than four-weeks from now on May 19th.
