BIG FIVE MEETING

LIVE: THE GOVERNOR IS MEETING AT THE STATE CAPITOL THIS AFTERNOON WITH THE SENATE'S AND ASSEMBLY'S DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN LEADERS. THE GOVERNOR CALLED THE MEETING OF WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE "BIG FIVE" TO DISCUSS WHETHER IT IS POSSIBLE TO COMPROMISE ON A WATER BOND, AND WHETHER IT WILL BE IN TIME FOR THE FEBRUARY 2008 PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY BALLOT.

SUPER: TODAY/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

SUPER: AUGUST 24, 2007/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:20) ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN LEADER MIKE VILLINES AND HIS DEMOCRATIC COUNTERPART SPEAKER FABIAN NUNEZ ARE NOT VERY OPTIMISTIC A COMPROMISE PLAN CAN BE ACHIEVED FOR FEBRUARY. BOTH LEADERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT REQUESTING VOTERS TO APPROVE BOND SPENDING WITH THE STATE'S LOOMING 10 BILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT. VILLINES AND THE ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN BUDGET CHAIR MET WITH THE GOVERNOR THIS MORNING TO DISCUSS POSSIBLY REOPENING THE CURRENT FISCAL YEAR'S BUDGET TO ADDRESS THE TWO BILLION DOLLAR SHORTFALL IN THIS SPENDING PLAN, IN ANTICIPATION OF THE EIGHT BILLION DOLLAR HOLE IN THE 2008-2009 BUDGET.

SUPER: ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN LEADER MIKE VILLINES/R-CLOVIS

SOT: (:27)

SAYS: "I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE BUDGET ... BE WORKING ON IT NOW."

SUPER: ASSEMBLY SPEAKER FABIAN NUNEZ/D-LOS ANGELES

SOT: (:24)

SAYS: "I DO THINK THAT WE NEED TO FOCUS RIGHT AWAY ON THE PROBLEM ... FOR NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET."

VO TAG: IF AGREEMENT ON THE WATER BOND IS REACHED NOW, PLACING IT ON THE FEBRUARY 2008 SUPPLEMENTAL BALLOT WOULD COST ADDITIONAL TAX PAYER DOLLARS AND REQUIRE WAIVING PORTIONS OF THE STATE ELECTIONS CODE WHICH THE LEGISLATURE IS ABLE TO DO IF THEY CHOOSE.

SUPER: ASSEMBLY SPEAKER FABIAN NUNEZ/D-LOS ANGELES

SOT: (:37)
