Eye On Boise

Hearing on agencies facing funds phase-out…

There’s a packed house at JFAC this morning, where budget hearings are scheduled for three agencies for which Gov. Butch Otter has proposed phasing out all state general funds over the next four years. Under questioning just now, Wayne Hammon, the governor’s budget director, said, “The governor does not propose eliminating any of these agencies.” Instead, he said, he’s asked them to “identify other sources to replace their general fund. … Some of these agencies have taken that seriously.” Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise, said, “When the governor proposes no sound alternative for funding, that is in effect elimination.”
