Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's updated budget proposal won't be unveiled until Friday, but Assembly Democrats are already responding to the yet-to-be released May revise.

Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez and Assembly Budget Committee Chair Bob Blumenfield are holding a 10 a.m. presser to lay out their expectations and pledge to maintain openness in the budget process. Those promises include bucking the Big 5 meetings and televising committee hearings online.

Budget subcommittees from both houses are coming together today for a 1:30 p.m. joint hearing on improving operations at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

California prisons are also the topic of talk in front of the Assembly Public Safety Committee today. That committee is meeting at 9:30 a.m. to look at proposals for paroling the state's aging inmate population.

The Senate Transportation and Housing Committee takes a look at a recent State Auditor report on the High-Speed Rail Authority. The audit, which you can read here, warned of delays and incomplete projects due to a lack of planning and inadequate oversight. State Auditor Elaine Howle and Authority interim Executive Director Carrie Pourvahidi are expected to testify at the 1:30 p.m. hearing.

SD15 SPECIAL: Secretary of State Debra Bowen holds a randomized drawing today to determine the ballot order for candidates running in the June 22 special primary election to fill Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado's old seat in the 15th Senate District. Of course, whether that election proceeds as planned depends on the fate of a lawsuit asking a federal judge to halt the contest until the U.S. Department of Justice approves the election for one county subject to review under the federal Voting Rights Act.

BALLOT WATCH: Opponents of Proposition 14 are holding a 2 p.m. presser to talk about the impact the "top-two primary" measure would have on minor parties. Representatives from the Green, Libertarian, Peace and Freedom and American Independence parties, as well as Republican Party Vice Chair Tom Del Beccaro are scheduled to attend the event, which will be held at the PACSAT Studios on 16th and S streets.

About Comments

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
