Just in from the Statehouse

BOISE - Governor Butch Otter told lawmakers to tighten their fiscal belts, saying he will add additional budget cuts. Otter suggested a 4% cutback in September, but hinted that his State of the State and budget address on Monday that he will ask for even more.

"We will be announcing for 2011, a NO-GROWTH budget." Otter said that while unemployment numbers are still high in Idaho, and cutbacks will be hard to deal with, there is still reason for "cautious optimism" as well.
