Lower revenue figure adopted

The revenue figure recommended by the Joint Economic Outlook and Revenue Assessment Committee for next year - a figure $100 million below the governor's recommended budget - has just been adopted by JFAC. Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, told Rep. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise, who made the motion, "I know that I for one when you proposed this number was a little bit reluctant. It appears your committee was dead right." Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, said, "I would much rather that we as a committee set a low budget target than come back and do what we have just been doing with recissions. It's much easier to not have to take it back."
