SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - Lawmakers returning from their spring recess face fast-approaching deadlines.

They will soon need to decide whether to make deeper cuts to social welfare programs and reform the public employee pension system. They also have to decide on borrowing for a high-speed rail system.

They reconvene tomorrow and will start considering their budget options in earnest as the state faces a $9.2 billion deficit.
