The latest on California politics and government

1.18.11 Asm. Donnelly / Budget Shreding from CA Assembly GOP on Vimeo.

If a new online video by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, is any indication, Gov. Jerry Brown has a ways to go to convince Republican legislators to go along with his budget plan.

The video, which was posted on the conservative website FlashReport, shows Donnelly dissing parts of the budget plan and ripping out sections and shredding them. The video brings to mind congressional Republicans, who knocked around and tied up copies of the Democratic health care reform plan.

You can also see the video here on Donnelly's official website.

The Southern California Assemblyman does, however, offer more specific budget proposals than many of his GOP colleagues have. He criticizes the California Air Resources Board, and apparently rips out and shreds the section of the budget related to the board. He also proposes eliminating the Employment Development Department (ripped, shredded) and deporting illegal immigrants in state prisons.
