Senate GOP rams cuts through

For some great TV tune in to Senate TV on the Senate web site. At this late hour – 7:30 p.m. – the Senate is still debating Senate Bill 220, the Appropriations Supplemental.

After just being discharged from the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Senate now has to approve a 38-page bill without even reading it, at lest for the Democrats.

This is the Top Secret plan Mike Bishop took so much trouble to keep from everyone. Sen. Liz Brater had the best quote.

“I’m not surprised it took you so long to revel these cuts,” she said. I would be embarrassed too.”

Just from the debate the cuts include reductions of $65.3 million from Community Health, $14.7 in Transportation and $35 million from Human Services.
