California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about the state's budget.
Federal stimulus programs that funneled billions of dollars to state governments are winding down, and states around the country are facing "big holes" in their budgets, according to a new report from the National Conference of State Legislatures.
A few other highlights from the report:
At the moment, Illinois has by far the biggest deficit of any state, relative to its overall budget; the state's deficit is 47 percent of its budget. Arizona is a distant second at 9.7 percent.
Eighteen states reported that Medicaid or other health care programs were over budget.
