The Bay Area Council, a business group made up of 275 of the San Francisco areas largest firms, today called on the state legislature to find a way to work with Governor Jerry Brown, and close the states $26.6 billion budget deficit. In a letter faxed to each member of the Senate and Assembly in Sacramento, the group urged members to embrace the spirit of compromise. The Council last week endorsed Browns plan after a meeting between Brown and the groups executive committee (see story). Jim Wunderman, President and CEO of the Council, said at the time that not everything Brown proposed was to the groups liking.
