Senate layoffs resulted from $4 million budget gap


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The state Senate faces a budget shortfall of up to $4 million this fiscal year, helping explain why it laid off 39 of its roughly 1,000 staff members last month.

Senate officers had previously said that fiscal problems were to blame for the cutbacks.

Rain causes travel problems in Sacramento area

Rain causes travel problems in Sacramento area


The much-needed rain storm throughout the Sacramento area on Tuesday did not go off without a hitch.

The wet and slippery roads caused major travel problems for commuters during the evening rush hour. The heavy congestion was a headache for drivers who were stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.

Dozens of vehicle accidents were reported, including a solo-vehicle roll over crash on Exposition Boulevard. The driver walked away without injuries.

"There's a lot of traffic and accidents so it kind of helped me," said Lea Johnson, who found herself stuck in traffic, trying to make her flight out of Sacramento International Airport.

Luckily for Johnson, her flight, as well as dozens of others, were delayed because of the inclement weather.

"First, they told me 35 minutes [delay] and now, it's almost an hour," she said.
