News Panel: Gov. Brown's revised budget, CA state park closures, and the blocked nomination of Goodwin Liu
Gov. Brown presents his revised budget just days after the state shows an unexpected surge of $6.6 billion in new revenues. There may be obstacles when the state tries to close seventy of California's state parks next year because of budget cuts. The nomination of U.C. Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is blocked by Republicans in the U.S. Senate.
