Reporting from Sacramento — In an apparent effort to increase pressure on lawmakers negotiating an end to California’s fiscal crisis, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is preparing to send pink slips to 20,000 state workers. The governor had delayed sending the layoff notices since Friday, hoping lawmakers would soon approve a package to close a nearly $41-billion budget gap. But despite intense negotiations since Saturday, Schwarzenegger and the Senate Democratic majority have been unable to secure a third Republican vote for a plan that includes more than $14 billion in new taxes.
