State Leaders Stunned by Proposed Budget Cuts

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

A day after the State of the State address, agencies are reeling, state employees are worried and lawmakers are bracing for a big battle. But the governor’s speech didn’t include many of the controversial proposals people will be fighting over this session.

It’s not that the governor was hiding the painful cuts. They were all right there for everyone to see in his budget, he just didn’t want to talk about them.

The mood in Carson City wasn’t positive. A lot of people are trying to stay upbeat and keep a light heart, but the cuts are so deep and the shortfall is so large, the sheer reality of it is sobering, tough stuff.
