    Reporting from Sacramento -- The state will suspend tax refunds, welfare checks, student grants and other payments owed to Californians starting Feb. 1, Controller John Chiang announced Friday.

    Chiang said he had no choice but to stop making some $3.7 billion in payments in the absence of action by the governor and lawmakers to close the state's nearly $42-billion budget deficit. More than half of those payments are tax refunds.

    Noticed that they plan to make the local welfare payments; Give the people that have never worked a day in their lives money from our taxes and don't pay refunds to working people that over paid and no benefits to people that earned them. This gripes my ass big time!
