Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) is expected to press the California state legislature to pass a bill that would overturn a State Lands Commission decision denying an application by Plains Exploration & Production Co. to expand an existing offshore lease. State officials say the Governor's action is motivated by a $23 billion deficit in the California state budget and would not run afoul of a 1994 state ban on new offshore drilling. However, the move drew a sharp response from the State Lands Commission, which accused the Governor of making a "naked power grab." Reuters has more details.
