***BUDGET IN SENATE VO/SOT

THE REFEED OF THIS ITEM CONTAINS VIDEO OF THE ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN LEADER'S OFFICE WHERE MEMBERS CAUCUSED THIS AFTERNOON, AND ADDITIONAL SOUNDBITES WITH SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DICK ACKERMAN AT THE TOP OF THE ITEM.

LIVE: THE STATE SENATE HAS NOT YET CONVENED TODAY, AND REMAINS ON CALL OF THE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE. SENATOR DON PERATA INDICATED HIS REPUBLICAN COUNTERPART ASSURED HIM THERE WOULD BE SUFFICIENT VOTES TO PASS THE BUDGET.

SUPER: TODAY/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:25) THE BUDGET HAS BEEN STALLED IN THE SENATE SINCE THE ASSEMBLY APPROVED IT JULY 20TH THEN RECESSED FOR SUMMER BREAK. THE BUDGET IS 51 DAYS OVERDUE TODAY. SENATE REPUBLICANS HAVE HELD OUT FOR 700 MILLION DOLLARS IN CUTS FROM THAT VERSION OF THE BUDGET. THE G-O-P SENATORS ALSO WANT ACCOMPANYING BILLS TO THE BUDGET THAT WILL PREVENT LAWSUITS TO CITIES AND COUNTIES WHO DO NOT FACTOR GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS INTO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORTS FOR CONSTRUCTION.

SUPER: SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DICK ACKERMAN/R-IRVINE

SOT: (:14)

SAYS: "IT AS YOU KNOW JUST CAME BACK TODAY, I'VE HAD DISCUSSIONS WITH MIKE VILLINES, I'VE TRIED TO CALL THE SPEAKER AND NOT HEARD BACK FROM HIM."

SUPER: SENATE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE DON PERATA/D-OAKLAND

SOT: (:16)

SAYS: "AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED THERE'S A DEAL OUGHT TO BE DONE TODAY, IT SHOULD BE DONE TODAY. THERE ARE NO REASONS TO DELAY IT, THERE WASN'T ANY REASON TO DELAY IT THIS LONG, BUT DICK ACKERMAN HAS SAID TO ME, WE HAVE SUFFICIENT VOTES TO VOTE FOR THE BUDGET TODAY AND GET IT DONE."

VO TAG: THE SENATE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE AND REPUBLICAN LEADERS INDICATED THERE WOULD BE A MEETING BETWEEN THEM, THE GOVERNOR AND THE LEADERS IN THE ASSEMBLY BEFORE A VOTE WAS TAKEN. THAT WAS EXPECTED TO BE LATER TODAY. PERATA SAYS BILLS THAT DEAL WITH TRANSPORTATION BOND MONEY APPROVED BY VOTERS LAST YEAR WILL ENSURE CITIES AND COUNTIES ARE NOT SUED FOR NOT FACTORING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS UNTIL REGULATIONS ARE ADOPTED BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD. THOSE REGULATIONS WERE EXPECTED TO BE ADOPTED BY 2012. THE TENTATIVE AGREEMENT STATES THE REGULATIONS WILL BE IN PLACE BY 2010.

LIVE:

ASSEMBLY SPEAKER FABIAN NUNEZ AND ASSEMBLY MINORITY LEADER MIKE VILLINES ARE OPTIMISTIC THE STATE BUDGET IMPASSE WILL BE RESOLVED SOON. THE ASSEMBLY PASSED ITS VERSION OF THE BUDGET LAST MONTH, AND HAD BEEN ON RECESS UNTIL TODAY.

SUPER: TODAY/ STATE CAPITOL

VO: (:25) THE ASSEMBLY DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN CAUCUSES MET TODAY AT NOON, AND THEIR DISCUSSIONS DELAYED THE START OF TODAY'S ASSEMBLY SESSION BY A FEW MINUTES. SPEAKING AFTER TODAY'S SESSION ADJOURNED, VILLINES AND NUNEZ AGREED THERE IS A BROAD OUTLINE FOR A BUDGET DEAL, BUT BOTH SAY THE CRITICAL DISCUSSIONS ARE TAKING PLACE IN THE STATE SENATE. VILLINES SAYS THE NEW BUDGET DEAL INCLUDES CHANGES TO THE WAY THE STATE WILL ENFORCE THE CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY LAW FOLLOWING LAST YEAR'S PASSAGE OF A BILL THAT TO REGULATE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IN CALIFORNIA WHICH GARNERED WORLD WIDE ATTENTION.

SUPER: ASSEMBLY SPEAKER FABIAN NUNEZ/ D-LOS ANGELES

SOT: (0:33) not transcribed due to time.

VO TAG:

THE BUDGET REQUIRES A 2/3 MAJORITY FOR PASSAGE IN EACH HOUSE, AND SENATE REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN HOLDING OFF ITS PASSAGE BY DEMANDING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL BE STOPPED FROM FILING LAWSUITS AGAINST LOCAL GOVERNMENTS THAT DON'T INCLUDE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION REDUCTIONS IN THEIR LAND USE PLANNING DECISIONS. NUNEZ DESCRIBED ANY NEGOTIATED CHANGES TO THE BUDGET OR ENFORCEMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS AS MINIMAL, BUT THAT HE HAD NOT HAD A CHANCE TO REVIEW THEM COMPLETELY.
