Budget standoff hits record 63 days

California has now gone an unprecedented 63 days without a budget.

The previous record was set in 2002 under Gray Davis, when the legislature approved a spending plan on August 31.

Lawmakers worked through the weekend, but legislative leaders say there is no sign of a compromise in sight.

The senate met Monday, but the assembly is off until Wednesday.

The budget gridlock is preventing Republicans, including Gov. Schwarzenegger from attending their national convention, the same thing that happened last week to Democrats.
