Live Webcast: Steinberg & Leno Answer Budget Related Questions at Town Hall Forum

11:18 AM PDT on June 11, 2009

"As California's elected leaders work on the difficult choices of resolving an unprecedented state budget crisis, our state's residents have growing concerns and questions about how severe the consequences will be in order to balance a budget where the deficit has now ballooned to more than $20 billion.

Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) and Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), member of the Conference Committee on the Budget, are planning an open platform for the public to ask those questions.
That opportunity will come in the form of a live Internet Town Hall forum on Monday, June 15, 2009 from 6pm-7:30pm.  The Senators will answer budget questions emailed by the public.  Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor from the nonpartisan LAO office will also participate during part of the program. 
Anyone is welcome to submit his or her question prior to the program through the Senate Majority Caucus website, Steinberg's website or Leno's website  The Senators will also field questions which viewers email in live during the Internet Town Hall broadcast itself.
The webcast can be viewed via livestream at and will also be available for viewing on The California Channel, which is carried on cable television systems around the state."
