"As CBS news correspondent Ben Tracy explains, California announced about a billion dollars in cuts .... California Gov. Jerry Brown said: 'We don't want to dig ourselves into a hole that becomes virtually impossible to climb out of.' He said a stronger economy has helped increase tax revenue, but the state's current budget is still short $2.2 billion. The automatic cuts will now slash budgets for schools, in-home support for seniors and the disabled, libraries and prisons." (12/13/11)
