Schwarzenegger’s NYE ‘Friday News Dump’

_42386377_afp203x200arnie.jpgHave you heard the news?

Breaking, from the LA Times:

A sales-tax increase, hike in vehicle registration fees, reduction of state workforce and cuts to state and community colleges are part of the governor’s plan to close a $41.6-billion deficit.

On New Year’s Eve? A big fat plan to cut spending for the disabled? Increase alcohol tax? Slash child-tax credits? Reduce staff? Cut spending for schools? All while the governor is on a vaca with his family in Idaho?!

We asked LAT’s Evan Halper if this is the ultimate example of a ‘Friday news dump’?

His response? “Pretty much.”
