Controller Chiang hospitalized in Texas

SACRAMENTO Spokeswoman Hallye Jordan says /*John Chiang*/ checked himself into Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth on Friday and is resting comfortably.

She says she is not aware that the 46-year-old controller has any past medical problems.

Chiang, a Democrat, serves as California's chief fiscal watchdog and has said the state will run out of money in February unless the governor and lawmakers act.

Earlier this year, he challenged Gov. /*Arnold Schwarzenegger*/'s order to reduce state workers' pay to the federal minimum wage. That battle is still being fought in state court.

According to his biography, Chiang has a law degree from Georgetown University and began his career as a tax law specialist with the IRS.
