Calif. court sides with Schwarzenegger on pay

A California appellate court has sided with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in his move to pay state workers minimum wage. The governor made the move late Thursday involving 200,000 state workers to send a signal to California lawmakers in the impasse over closing California's $19 billion budget deficit.

The Legislature's deadline to send a spending plan to the governor passed two weeks ago, and the fiscal year began Thursday with Republicans and majority Democrats no closer to finding a compromise.
