GOP Censure

Fresno, CA, USA GOP delegates from across the state are in Sacramento this weekend for their annual meeting -- and many are steaming after Villines voted for a budget plan that will raise taxes by $12.8 billion dollars.

But stopping by the action news newsroom today -- assemblyman Villines defended his vote.

Today a GOP committee voted to reprimand the six lawmakers - and all the delegates will get to vote tomorrow.

Villines said he understands the party's frustrations and calls the budget plan a tough compromise. He said it provides permanent tax cuts while raising taxes only temporarily.
