California changes budget rules to ease passage
SAN FRANCISCO |
SAN FRANCISCO Nov 2 (Reuters) - California voters approved a measure on Tuesday to eliminate the state's requirement for a supermajority vote to pass the state budget, local media projected.
Supporters of Proposition 25 say the new simply majority of lawmakers threshold will help California meet its state budget deadline. State leaders routinely miss that deadline and engage in lengthy battles over state spending plan proposals.
