CA Dems Pass Record Budget - and Sneak Provision to Protect Josh Newman from Recall - Breitbart

CA Dems Pass Record Budget - and Sneak Provision to Protect Josh Newman from Recall - Breitbart: California Democrats passed a $125 billion budget Thursday, the largest in state history, while slipping in a provision to alter the recall process to protect State Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) and their supermajority.

Newman, a freshman from a relatively conservative district, is facing a recall after he voted for Gov. Jerry Brown’s 12-cent gas tax hike earlier this year. Only one Republican joined the two-thirds majority — in exchange for $400 million in pork for his district — but he has reached the maximum allowable terms and is not running again.
