L.A. assemblywoman will make history

SACRAMENTO Former community activist Karen Bass will be the first black woman to hold the top post.

Her first priority is the budget. Bass says it can't be balanced by spending cuts alone, but didn't offer any specific tax increases.

Bass supports public financing of political campaigns, but says she has no plans to launch any campaign finance reform initiatives.
