Otter: ‘Sweeping changes’ that are ‘meant to be permanent’

The governor told lawmakers, "The budget recommendations I bring you today are based on the fact that it is not state government's money. It is the people's money. As a result, these recommendations are responsibly conservative. ... They provide for a balanced budget, as our Idaho Constitution so wisely requires." He added that his budget includes "some sweeping changes to the way we do business in state government - those changes are meant to be permanent, based on a philosophy of government that recognizes our responsibility to individual Idahoans rather than to government itself."
