Inspirational quote from Ann Notthoff, California advocacy director at the Natural Resources Defense Council, in a Jan. 14 NRDC news release:
California leads the nation in legislative initiatives to fight global warming and it’s vital we build on that success to provide a lasting recovery for our economy and a clean energy future.
US News, Tuesday, “In Deepening Recession, California Begins Laying Off 20,000 State Employees“:
In the latest sign of the recession—and of its consequences for state and local governments—California began laying off 20,000 government workers today.
California, the world’s-eighth largest economy, has a projected deficit of $41 billion through 2010. It’s been trying for months to come up with a budget that can close that gap, but to no avail. Currently stalled in the legislature, the budget is now 15 weeks overdue.
