“This is a budget with a body count.”

That’s how Assemblywoman Noreen Evans began her statement as chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, as they started deliberation.

She was clear that the budget proposal was not acceptable, that “there was a lot of sacrifice, but it isn’t shared.” She said that since the Governor’s proposal wasn’t acceptable, the Legislature would not use the Governor’s budget as a framework, and would have to take it upon themselves to craft somthing that then the Governor would respond to.

We’ll keep you posted.
