Time For Cuts to Save the State
Tennessee is ready for our radical lesson in budgetary responsibility:
"We're going to have to make some hard choices," Rep. Frank Niceley (R-Strawberry Plains) told The Examiner this morning, "but we know that we have to balance the budget. Some people are going to be hurt by these cuts, there's no getting around it, but we have to be fiscally responsible and do what is required of us." Niceley said that in some cases, the choice it to make some cuts now or make massive cuts and have much larger-scale State layoffs later. "I hate that it has come to this, but it is what it is," Niceley said.
