Thursday was a big day in the House, with members voting to approve cuts and rainy-day-fund use to close the $4 billion shortfall in the current budget. You can read all about it here.
I’d venture to say today is even more important. Today, House members will vote on the state budget for the next two years, and based on the state’s revenue situation, they will make sizable cuts across state government. Make no mistake: This is a budget that reduces spending and shrinks government.
