LOS ANGELES (CBS) — State budget cuts may wipe out a 200-member elite security detail that has been keeping a close eye on Gov. Jerry Brown since he became attorney general.

A special agent says the unit is too important to eliminate, but pink slips could go out as early as next month.

Brown recently unveiled a controversial new pension plan that would affect state workers.
