A tale of two budgets
This past week House Republicans unveiled their proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Obviously, as a member of the majority party, I view this budget as a more balanced and sustainable approach than that offered by the Democrat-controlled Senate.
For starters, the House budget protects priority services in education, health and human services, and public safety while at the same time spending less than what the state will take in.
The House budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2014 comes in at $6.4139 billion which provides a modest, 3-percent increase in General Fund spending over last year and continues the practice of two years ago to align spending with revenue. There is a great deal of uncertainty about future revenue due to on-going drought conditions, slow economic growth, and the federal budget situation.
