“The governor and the leaders have reached a framework of an agreement. We will continue to work through the details over the weekend and hope to come to a final agreement Monday when they reconvene,” said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear. He declined to provide any details.

Schwarzenegger and the Legislature’s top four lawmakers met for the second consecutive day in Santa Monica to try to hammer out the accord.
