States begin fiscal year without a budget..

5 posts in this topic

Several states are starting the fiscal year without a spending budget in place.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a fiscal emergency and ordered state offices closed three days a month to save money as state officials plan to pay bills with IOUs starting Thursday.

"I'm proud of California, even though we have our crisis," the governor said. "No one can point fingers, because as you can see, there are 30 states right now that have their fiscal year starting today that also don't have a budget, so I mean let's not get carried away and just look at California as we are the only state that cannot manage the budget."

If everyone's doing it, it can't be bad, right?

Ahnold's momma is blushing bright red at this very moment & mumbling "Didn't that boy learn him nothin'!"

This is just despicable. You can blame it on the recession, but they were having fiscal troubles long before that. How much money is enough? How much tax payer money must be wasted before they open their eyes and act responsibly? This is a terrible example for our kids.......
