New revenue estimate would force more cuts

The successful motion, made by Sen. Russ Fulcher and seconded by Sen Jim Hammond, R-Post Falls, sets fy 2010 revenue at 2.280 billion - which is $69 million below the governor's figure, and means, if the state budgets actually are set based on these figures, there's $69 million more must be cut from this year's budget beyond cuts already recommended - and for fy 2011, $2.290 billion, which is $59 million below the governor's recommended budget for next year. That means more cuts even than Otter's called for next year.
