Financial Woes Could Dominate 2010 Session

Boise--Idaho Governor Butch Otter says the 2009 budget is short to the tune of $173 million dollars. The Governor says the state projected revenues would be around $2.5 billion dollars but it's come up short because of a sluggish, recovering economy.

"We're going to have to make adjustments in our expenditures for 173 million dollars", Otter said. The Governor says there wasn't enough state revenue coming in and now that could mean another round of cuts. Right now Governor Otter says he's withhold further comments on budget cuts until further study of the problem.
