State budget

Despite their opposite votes on the state budget, Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, left, and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, of Los Angeles,  shake hands after the Senate approved the budget at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, June 15, 2015. Both houses of the Legislature approved a new $117.5 billion budget plan that focuses on spending more to help the working poor. Though the spending proposal has been approved, Legislative leaders are still negotiating with Go. Jerry Brown on a deal he will support. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
