County Officials Uneasy Over Proposal To Take On Services
A state Senate plan to move some health, welfare and public safety programs from state to county control has local leaders concerned over funding issues and the exact details of the proposal.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's (R) budget proposal -- have yet to be announced.
