Idaho looking at budget cuts despite stimulus

Idaho still will have to make substantial cuts in state agency budgets, despite the help it'll receive from federal economic stimulus funds, state lawmakers said today. "There's somehow this feeling that this bill will solve all the problems, and it just won't," said Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert. Idaho still could face "reductions in every area," he said. His comments came after JFAC held its first of four days of hearings today on what's in the stimulus bill for Idaho.
