Locals hold budget rally in San Luis Obispo

California's budget woes are on the minds of people all across the state, including here at home.

On the eve of Governor Schwarzenegger's revised budget announcement, a dozen people rallied in San Luis Obispo outside of Assemblymember Sam Blakeslee's office.

They want to encourage him to support getting rid of tax breaks for the state's richest corporations in order to save basic services.

"California's spending 10 billion dollars a year on tax breaks that we can't afford anymore. We're losing hearing aids for our seniors and glasses for our kids. It's time to close some corporate tax loopholes to protect basic health care," said Jessica Rothhaar.

The state's nearly 20 billion dollar budget deficit has not improved since January.
