Senator Republican Leader Bob Dutton and Senate Budget Committee Vice Chair Bob Huff issued the following statement regarding state budget discussions:
Governor Brown challenged Republicans to be engaged in the budget process. Republicans have been engaged for months. Today he was presented with a thorough outline, which reiterates our priorities, including: getting our state back on track by reining in runaway spending; controlling unsustainable public employee pensions; getting people back to work; protecting and improving our state’s public education system; and making critical adjustments to the governor’s flawed budget.
Republicans were accused of being the party of “no” and now Republicans are accused of being the party of “too much yes.”
