SACRAMENTO — California plans to issue $3.3 billion in deficit bonds next month to stem a growing cash crisis in the state’s general fund.

The bonds, planned for the week of Feb. 18, will use up the remainder of the 2004 voter authorization of economic recovery bonds, which were planned to clean up the mess from the state’s previous budget crisis. Lehman Brothers will be senior manager on the deal, according to the state treasurer’s office.
