Deadline Passes for Deal on Initiatives
The deadline passed Thursday for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democratic lawmakers to strike a deal to avert a fight over initiatives in the Nov. 8 special election.
Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez said that if the governor and he could reach agreement in the next few days, Secretary of State Bruce McPherson might allow the results to be placed on the ballot.
But McPherson said that would be too late.
