Rossi: What I’d do now about the budget…

Trying to trump Gov. Gregoire’s recent announcement of a hiring freeze and other budget-trimming measures, Republican challenger Dino Rossi says he’d:

-launch a year-long hiring freeze,
-and shrink consulting contracts 20 percent, travel 10 percent and supply purchases 10 percent

Rossi says the state should not only hire no new workers (except for public safety workers and a few other categories), but that it should only replace one worker for every four that leave.
