Voters Reject Most Statewide Measures
Seaside, CA – In the special election aimed at addressing California's budget problems, measures 1A to 1E failed. Measure 1F passed. 1F keeps elected state officials from getting raises when the general fund ends the year with a deficit.
The failure leaves the state with a more than $21-billion deficit. Democratic Assemblyman Bill Monning of Carmel supported all the measures. KAZU's Krista Almanzan spoke with him on Election Night about what's next.
