When Will The Budget Pass?

Not on time.  Today, June 15th, is the Constitutional deadline for passing the budget.  According to the Sacramento Bee:

Legislators have made that deadline only four times since 1977, all during the 1980s, according to the Department of Finance. The last time was back in 1986.

And here is a nifty chart from the Bee showing how late it might get:
