Most California lawmakers say they agree with Governor Jerry Brown that now is the time for fiscal discipline in light of a balanced budget.
But as Amy Quinton reports from Sacramento, Democratic lawmakers have not ruled out restoring some cuts.
Legislative Democratic leaders expressed relief at the announcement of a balanced budget. They say the extra $2.7 billion in education funding is also a step in the right direction.
Senate Budget Chair Mark Leno says lawmakers are now in a position to talk about policy rather than cuts.
