Schwarzenegger said the state, which faces a budget deficit of 19 billion dollars, is on the verge of a “fiscal meltdown” and could be forced to issue IOUs starting in August to avert a new cash crisis.

“Our cash situation leaves me no choice but to once again furlough state workers until the legislature produces a budget I can sign,” he said in a statement.
