Washington governor proposes deep cuts to state programs

from The Associated Press via Yahoo! News

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire unveiled a two-year budget plan that uses a mix of cuts to state programs, suspension of voter initiatives and use of the state's "rainy day" fund to patch a projected $4.6 billion deficit. In her proposal, Gregoire made about $3 billion in cuts in her 2011-2013 budget to programs across state government. Another $1.1 billion was saved by not paying for two voter-backed education initiatives that deal with teacher pay raises and money for reducing class sizes. Her plan would leave the state's operating budget with a balance of about $881 million. more
