New Media and Schwarzenegger’s Budget Crisis Clock

In an attempt to reach new audiences to get the word out about California’s budget deficit, the governor’s office has created a new online widget that marks how many days the Legislature has gone without passing a new budget and displays the amount of money the state is losing by the second.

The governor has even kept an updated Twitter account that posts regularly about the budget deficit and state issues. It’s a great way to follow the budget crisis at a glance.

While you’re catching up on how quickly the state budget is draining through on Schwarzenegger’s Twitter, don’t forget to add CAIVP on Twitter and Facebook.
