Wednesday – the Legislature will get a new revenue forecast.
And that will guide the final decisions on spending.
Already, budget increases have been reduced from what Governor Dalrymple had proposed. But Legislative leaders say it’s not correct to call those reductions “budget cuts.”
"Pretty much, every budget is bigger than it was last time," said House Majority Leader Al Carlson (R-Fargo). "The only reductions are in their increases, not in their budgets."
