California: Veto Ax Cuts Into Social Programs
October 12, 2010
On Friday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed almost $1 billion in program spending before signing the budget bill that lawmakers passed after a marathon overnight session. The governor slashed 23 line items from the $87.5 billion general fund budget, including nearly $60 million from HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs, $133 million from mental health services for special-education students, and $256 million from a care program for school-age children of families transitioning from welfare.
