Shilling Debates Budget
Debate on a new state budget went passed midnight today after senate democrats held up a vote late Thursday night. Senator Jennifer Shilling says there's been quite a bit of debate on the budget and there's only a few things she did agree with.
The budget would cut income taxes $650 million, expand private voucher schools statewide and reject a federally funded expansion of Medicaid. It sets funding for public schools, requiring collection of DNA for anyone convicted of a crime, and allowing the sale of public properties.
