Capitol Alert
The latest on California politics and government
March 11, 2011

Gov. Jerry Brown was working with advisers this morning on a pension reform proposal in his bid to reach a budget deal.

“We’re working on pension reform over there in the Department of Finance,” Brown told The Bee between meetings at the Capitol.

The Democratic governor is negotiating with a splinter group of Republican senators who have demanded pension, regulatory and other government changes. Brown declined to say what his pension proposal might include.

“As much as we can include that will not set at loggerheads all the opposing parties,” he said.

Brown said he will work in Sacramento over the weekend but did not know if the senators will stay in town.

“Whenever they want,” he said, “I’m here.”
