Easley's unreal spending cuts
Posted by Joseph Coletti at 09:23 AM
Even though Gov. Easley is not up for reelection and all the members of the General Assembly are, the state's absentee chief executive passed along the hard budget decisions to the legislators.
"Where are the wholesale program reductions, or the things that are not looking so well? That's not the way we looked at this," [budget policy advisor Dan] Gerlach said. "The General Assembly is going to take over, and they will look at those programs."
Easley and Gerlach - standing on principle.
