Budget Vote Today – Do Not Expect End to Enterprise Zones

Both the Senate and Assembly have scheduled floor votes for the budget at 1:00 pm today. You can watch the sessions live online at CalChannel.

Included in the list of budget trailer bills to be voted on are AB 103 and SB 79 which call for the complete and even retroactive elimination of the Enterprise Zones.

This is expected to be what is called in the biz, a drill.

Among the “GOP 5″ Senators who have been negotiating with the Governor, there has not been any indication that they are ready to vote for increasing taxes including the Enterprise Zone elimination. Senator Blakeslee, for example is quoted as saying, “I haven’t seen any serious reforms that would fix the structural problems of the state.”
