[Update: Schwarzenegger declared a fiscal emergency and called the legislature into a special session. "Our state is again facing a budget deficit that will force difficult decisions by California's elected officials. If there is one thing we have learned over these past few years, it is that the longer we wait to tackle the problem, the larger and more difficult it is to solve," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "That is why I have called a special session today, so the legislature can get a head start on the problem. California taxpayers cannot afford another lengthy delay."]
