Stop-Gag Plan

Helen Ciurczek of member station KQED reports from Sacramento that the California legislature met late into the night and passed a 400 million dollar stop-gap plan. The money will allow the state to buy electricity on the open market and provide it to utilities at reduced cost. Governor Gray Davis is expected to sign the bill today.
