County Supervisors Wait for Outcome of Budget Plan Vote

Posted: Updated:
San Diego and 23 other counties are suing the state Friday to get their money.

County supervisors flew to Sacramento Thursday to tell lawmakers enough is enough. The state is supposed to issue checks Friday to counties to pay for welfare, food stamps, foster care and other social services.

The state controller said there's no money in the treasury because of the budget deadlock.

The lawsuit may be delayed in state lawmakers pass a proposed budget deal.

The budget plan includes nearly $16 billion in spending cuts; $11 billion in loans; and $14 billion in new taxes, including a one percent sales tax increase and an increase in the vehicle license fee.

A vote on the plan is scheduled for late Friday.
