Denney: ‘Take our best shot now’

House Speaker Lawerence Denney says amid Idaho’s gloomy budget outlook, he’s hearing lots of talk among state lawmakers about the federal economic stimulus legislation. “I fear there are those who will want to balance our budget with federal stimulus, and I don’t know what that will look like,” he said. “I suspect that a lot of the federal stimulus will have enough strings attached that we’ll either say yes or no.” Denney declared, “I think we need to take our best shot at setting our budget right now, and leave enough flexibility so that if it came, we could use it.”
