Gov’s budget presented today

Gov. Brown is announcing his budget today (Thursday), and from all the buzz it’s not going to be especially great news for the courts system. Our sources say there’s little chance that announced cuts will be rolled back, and that the 10 L.A. County courthouses set to close will remain on the chopping block. We’ll be sifting thru the analysis, but the oddest turn so far is that some Democrats, unhappy with what they see as the governor’s caution in the face of an improving economy, are already counting votes to override any veto of their spending proposals. Stay tuned, indeed.
