Presenting the state Division of Financial Management budget request to lawmakers this morning, Administrator Wayne Hammon said, "It's all zeroes - there's no inflation, no replacement costs, no line items." The division has laid off one employee, and is in the highest category for budget cuts for the coming year in the governor's recommendation, at 10 percent. JFAC Co-Chair Maxine Bell told Hammon, "Thank you for partnering with us through this. We'll all come out of this stronger and wiser."
