Voters Soundly Reject State Props
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
How did Tuesday's special election play out? We'll get post-election analysis about the propositions and what it means to the state and to San Diego.
Maureen Cavanaugh: The polls were right - most Californians who voted in yesterday's special statewide election wanted nothing to do with almost all the propositions presented to them by the governor and state lawmakers. This, despite warnings of financial catastrophe for the state if the propositions failed.
But even before Tuesday's vote, Governor Schwarzenegger announced the budget shortfall had increased, and whether or not the propositions passed, legislators would still have to find up to $20 billion in new revenue or cuts to keep California afloat.
