Negotiations in Santa Monica have proven fruitful for the team assigned to hammer out a state budget for California.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s spokesman said Thursday state lawmakers and the governor have reached a “framework of an agreement” on solving California’s longest-ever state budget impasse.
“The governor and the leaders have reached a framework of an agreement. We will continue to work through the details over the weekend and hope to come to a final agreement Monday when they reconvene,” said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear. He declined to provide any details.
This is the second day the team of legislators and the governor had met in Santa Monica negotiating the budget.
The governor had to bow out a few days due to illness.
