Big Reveal: Az Democrats Have New Budget Proposal

Posted By on Wed, May 27, 2009 at 4:33 PM

The Democratic House and Senate caucuses are teaming up tomorrow to unveil a new state budget proposal. Rep. Steve Farley told readers of his Farley Report that he couldn't "reveal any details right now—except to say that we can save education, healthcare, and jobs while at the same time enacting real tax reform that makes our state much more strong and stable for the coming decades."

Farley also said the budget would only need a simple majority to pass the House and Senate.

While Farley isn't sharing details, we hear that it starts with an expansion of the sales tax to cover services and other exempted items. Then it lowers the overall sales tax, and then the financial hocus-pocus really starts...

Details to follow...
