SACRAMENTO -- Facing the worst fiscal crisis of his tenure, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today proposed a $141-billion spending plan that would reduce healthcare programs for the poor, close 48 state parks, release tens of thousands of nonviolent inmates early and make substantial changes in almost every area of the state's budget.At the same time, he proposed expanding the state's debt load by more than $40 billion to finance more construction at public schools, colleges and other major institutions.
Schwarzenegger said the reductions were essential to close a $14.5-billion deficit created by the slumping housing sector and other economic factors.
