Republicans are ready to work with the Governor again on a balanced budget. House GOP Leader Jim Durkin says he wants to hear the Governor’s budget plans and hopes that the plans recognize both Republican and Democrat priorities.
Durkin says that the budget passed last year is proving to not only be balanced but one that is running a surplus. The budget is also encouraging growth as Durkin discussed with reporters on Tuesday…
As budget making begins in the next few weeks Durkin says he wants the Governor to focus on the amount of tax revenue the state currently has and not to look forward to a possible influx of cash from a graduated income tax.
The Governor gives his budget address today at noon at the statehouse.
