GOP Lawmakers Push Through Budget Plan

Posted By on Tue, Mar 9, 2010 at 11:00 PM

The GOP budget plan is working its way through the appropriations committees at the Legislature.

Howie has the details:


Legislative panels approved more than $1 billion in spending cuts, nearly $500 million in raids on special funds and some other budget maneuvers on Tuesday in their bid to balance the budget.

The votes in the House and Senate Appropriations committees, largely along party lines, came over the objections of various interests whose pet programs will get less funding or who are finding themselves with new financial obligations. Those calls went largely unheeded.
