Assembly Minority Leader Connie Conway says the elimination of up to three weeks of school would be "devastating" - and if Prop 30 doesn't pass, both parties should work together to find alternatives.
Conway: "I'm not saying it's gonna
be easy. But that's our job. And that's what people
expect us to do. So we need to do some soul-searching and
look around and figure out what we can do."
Asked what cuts the GOP would support instead, Conway said Republicans proposed a budget earlier this year without new taxes or cuts to education.
Conway: "I don't want to pinpoint
what I would do at this point until I see if I have to. But I
think everything should be on the table."
Governor Jerry Brown has insisted he would veto any effort to overturn the trigger cuts. He says California must balance its budget - with taxes or without.
