The state continues its pattern of bad budget behavior. A few months of a stop gap funding plan for government services expired Saturday night and the state is back again to operating without a budget. The state has 90 percent of its spending ordered by the courts but social services, higher education and many others will be left looking for dollars. And it’s not just current funding that’s impacted; the state has about $11 billion in unpaid bills.
