SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Democrats and Republicans each have something to dislike about California's newest spending plan.

Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday used their newfound majority-vote authority to fill in California's remaining $9.6 billion budget deficit. They did so without the tax renewals they had sought all year.

Republicans criticized the budget package for lacking any of the changes they sought to restrain state spending and improve California's business climate.

Democrats in the Legislature approved an $86 billion spending package using more spending cuts, greater-than-expected tax revenues and some new fees that are sure to be challenged in court.

Gov. Jerry Brown is certain to sign the package after striking a compromise with his fellow Democrats days earlier. He praised his fellow Democrats for producing an on-time budget.
