Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Democrats plan to announce a budget deal around 11 a.m. this morning, with floor votes expected Tuesday, according to Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco.

Democratic leaders and Brown reached a compromise that would reduce the amount of time welfare-to-work recipients can receive full aid without finding a job, according to sources close to negotiations. But the package contains CalWORKs exemptions designed to help welfare recipients on the verge of finding employment or struggling to find work in areas with high unemployment.

Brown rejected the Democrats' plan to bridge the state's $15.7 billion gap with $250 million in property tax dollars that counties say they are owed each year. Lawmakers and Brown found other ways to help plug the remaining hole, such as additional CalWORKs savings and using more money upfront from a multi-state mortgage settlement.
