Developing Story: California lawmakers approve spending cuts, no agreement on taxes

The SF Chronicle has more.

"The California Legislature began voting on billions of dollars in cuts to state spending Wednesday, with both houses approving measures to slash the welfare-to-work program and funding for developmental disability services.
Those measures now head to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature.

Lawmakers voted into the evening on a package of bills that make up the budget plan to relieve the state from a $26.6 billion deficit. But they did not take up the measure that will undoubtedly be the most contentious: legislation that will put additional taxes before voters in a June special election."
