The Legislative Analyst's Office has just released its overview of the 2009-10 state budget May Revision. On page 18, it suggests that the Legislature veto the SEIU contract and add a third furlough day each month:
The Legislature could direct the administration to score budgetary savings if it chooses not to approve the labor agreements proposed by the Governor with the state employee units represented by Service Employees International Union Local 1000. (These agreements reduce the number of furlough days for these state workers from two days per month to one day per month.) In addition, the Legislature could reduce state employee salaries by an additional 4.6Â percent in 2009-10 for more General Fund savings.
