Roberts motion: Cut $120M more this year

Rep. Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, has proposed a new motion setting revenue for both fiscal years 2010 and 2011 at $2.25 billion. That would force the Legislature to cut another $120 million from the current year's budgets - meaning far more holdbacks than Gov. Butch Otter has proposed, plus having to spend reserves this year that he tabbed for balancing next year's budget.
