Hold off on the panic re the State Park not reopening as planned for Memorial Day. The Sacramento Bee is reporting today that a deal has been reached, involving both taxes and spending, and a vote is expected on Friday. Of course, Friday may tell the story differently, so all we can do is wait for Friday, at this juncture. No indication from the story about furloughs, which has closed MAF on the 1st and 3d Fridays of the month.
Sorry to go back and forth between Storm Watch and Budget Watch. Please read the post immediately following, if you have not done so, as we have some potentially serious weather headed our way.
