More State of the State?
So we've heard the first word on the budget. Is there more?:
Rather than assail Haslam for the seeming copycat approach to government that emanates from his address and budget proposal, we should remember, as was said in this space yesterday, that in no way is Haslam's first word the final one on the budget. Last night's speech was also not, we hope, the last we'll hear from the Governor on the whole matter. It would be nice to hear some explanation as to how he believe his fiscal proposition, which he has stated meets the constitutional requirement of balancing the budget, is not the same as, but is in fact superior to the budgets of the Democrat who preceded him in the office he now holds.
Governor Haslam comes to Jefferson County Friday, March 25th to speak at the Jefferson County Republican Party's Lincoln-Reagan Day. Perhaps we'll hear more from him about the deeper principles behind his budget at that address.
