    Cal Legislature doesnt pass budget? They dont get paid.

    Blog: California's Controller: 'The Legislature will forfeit their pay'


    "My office's careful review of the recently-passed budget found components that were miscalculated, miscounted or unfinished," Chiang said in a statement. "The numbers simply did not add up, and the Legislature will forfeit their pay until a balanced budget is sent to the Governor."

    The controller said he determined that the Democratic budget spend $89.75 billion but only provided $87.9 billion in revenues, leaving a $1.85 billion imbalance.
    All I can say is its good to see legislators pay some personal pain for abdicating their responsibilities to do their job. I would say the exact same thing if it were Republicans doing the same thing. Legislators need to be accountable---this is accountability made personal

    I like this and would love to see it in DC, only make it more painful and make it a real penalty like losing a weeks pay for every day they don't pass a balanced budget.

    I love this John Chiang guy... Could he run for governor? Were I a Californian, I would vote for him just for doing this...
