Brewer Releases Her Own Budget Plan

Governor Jan Brewer today released her budget proposal that officially makes it the 4th one floating out there. The R's have versions in the House and Senate, and the D's have their released last Thursday. Brewer's appears to take a page out of each.

Preliminary details include a 1-cent sales tax hike, a billion dollars in cuts, and long term reform in the way the state finances itself.

With the announcement coming out today, I'm sure we'll start hearing thoughts very shortly and I'm sure they all will start beating up on each other this week. Lets all just hope this produces a budget that fixes the problem and hopefully puts us on the road to never being in this mess again.
