Wednesday Passes Without Budget Vote

Updated Thursday morning.

Yesterday the Senate and Assembly considered AB 101, which is the budget bill that includes the provisions to eliminate redevelopment, per Gov. Jerry Brown's proposal.  

AB 101 fell one vote short in the Assembly. It had passed the Senate Budget Committee, 10-7, but, upon failing in the Assembly, it did not come up for a vote in the full Senate. While the Assembly voted on AB 101, the Senate deliberated on SB 77, which is a mirror of AB 101.

Legislators did, however, approve $7.4 billion in spending cuts. 

Both houses are expected to reconsider the redevelopment bills in the 11am floor session today.
