Budget Process Revealed

Republicans say that passing the bills as proposed amounts to making the Governor's tax increase a permanent reality.

"Doesn't your appropiation bill assume the tax increase is permanent, not temporary," said Representative Ron Sandack . 
'How is it we're gonna pay for it then, Sir?"
"My job is just to get this bill outta the floor and pass it. I'm not gonna tell you how we're gonna pay for it just yet."
