California leaders agree to framework for budget deal

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 23 (Reuters) - California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and top lawmakers have a framework for an agreement on a state budget and hope to reach a final deal on Monday, a spokesman for the governor said on Thursday.

California’s state government has been operating for 85 days without a spending plan in place for its current fiscal year.

“The Governor and Legislative leaders have reached the framework of an agreement, will work through the details over the weekend, and hope to come to a final agreement when they reconvene Monday,” Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said in a statement.
