Senate won't come back to confirm Davis appointees

Senate Leader John Burton has notified members not to expect to reconvene in session before Gov. Gray Davis leaves office. That means last-minute Davis appointees who require confirmation will have their fates in the hands of Gov.-elect Schwarzenegger, who could rescind any of the appointments before they are confirmed.

This doesn't necessarily mean there is not a deal between the camps. We won't know that until we see how the new guv handles the old guv's moves. It is possible that Schwarzenegger has agreed to leave certain of Davis' appointments in place in exchange for an agreement that the Senate will not confirm the others.

Here is the text of Burton's notice to members:

"To quell any speculation regarding our reconvening in the near future: the Senate will not meet next week, nor at this time do I anticipate any extraordinary meeting.

"Legislative matters, including confirmation, will be handled in the normal course of business when we meet as regularly scheduled."



At Crossroads, a panel of experts and the public debate the future of health care in California. We'd like you to join the conversation.
