Schwarzenegger to re-submit Maldonado's nomination

February 16, 2010 10:31:55 AM PST
Governor Schwarzenegger plans to re-submit the nomination of Republican Abel Maldonado for lieutenant governor Tuesday afternoon.

The State Senate confirmed Maldonado last week, but the assembly could not reach a majority vote to either confirm or deny Maldonado's appointment.

Governor Schwarzenegger initially threatened to swear-in Maldonado, but, assembly Democrats objected and said they would take the case to court.

Lawmakers will now get another 90 days to decide on how to vote on the governor's nomination.
