'I didn't see it putting people to work'

Gov. Butch Otter said Reps. Moyle and Bedke came over and pitched to him their idea of using $45 million of federal stimulus for corporate tax cuts - all the discretionary money the governor had to divide. "Listen, they've got a lot of different ideas over there," Otter said. "I didn't see it putting jobs on the street, I didn't see it putting people to work." He said he discussed the idea with "the business community" and they didn't think it was the right way to go now, either.
