The White House released a $1.1 trillion budget plan Thursday that proposes deep cuts in spending on environmental protection, social services and education,and calls for a $54 billion military spending increase. According to state officials, the proposal, which also calls for the elimination of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, could have far reaching effects on California. Federal dollars constitute about a third of the state's budget and a number of programs -- particularly those that serve the poor -- would need to be scaled down. We discuss what the President's plan could mean for California.
