Look for Spending Cuts in 2010
Boise--Gov. Butch Otter is warning of further spending cuts - including education, social programs and transportation - because of a new forecast that shows a 6.8 percent drop in revenue.
The figure was last week by Otter's budget office. The Governor says fiscal 2010 revenue will fall $151 million short of the $2.507 billion the Legislature budgeted for the spending year that began July 1.
