Also in the News: Calif. state computers can't handle pay cut

The Sacramento Bee reports that technological problems could hinder California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's plan to reduce the pay of 200,000 state employees to the federal minimum wage.

The state's payroll system is built on an outdated computer language from the Vietnam era, and the state controller says reconfiguring it to issue blanket checks at the federal minimum wage of $6.55 an hour would take at least six months, according to the Sacramento Bee's report.
