As the state Senate debated over Gov. Jerry Brown's state budget plan, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, right, checks the time as he met with Senate Minority Leader Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga, left, and Sen. Ellen Corbett, D-San at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday March 17, 2011.
