“The last thing we should do is add permanent spending commitments to the state budget”

Statement of Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka regarding the February budget forecast:

 “The economists and budget experts said today the economy is slowing down and there will be less revenue for the state going forward. Knowing that, the last thing we should do is add permanent spending commitments to the state budget. And, in order for the economy to grow, we need to be careful about any new tax increases foisted on the very people who will drive our economy in the future – the middle class.”

Statement of Senate Finance Chair Julie Rosen:

“Now that we have the final numbers, our finance chairs will begin putting together the next budget using our four principles – taking care of people, protecting the taxpayer, controlling spending and getting it done on time and with transparency.”
