We're working with Bee reporter Jim Sanders to flesh out this story on Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's cuts to the budgets of the state's constititional officers. The cuts in almost every instance are directed specifically at funds that pay for employee wages.
Most of the cuts take 10 percent out of the departments' personal services budgets. Some less, and one, Lt. Gov. John Garamendi's 21-person office, takes a 62 percent hit.
