Budget Passes the Assembly but Remains One Vote Shy in the Senate

After being up all night, the Republicans had one vote for the key piece of the budget picture, that is by Senate GOP leader Dave Cogdill. Sen. Roy Ashburn has abstained but would cast the deciding vote once there is a third GOP vote. The most likely third vote is Sen. Dave Cox, but he voted no despite being courted all night long by Gov. Schwarzenegger and Senate leader Darrell Steinberg.So stay turned, they are still meeting at this hour (5 am). Updates will follow passage.
