STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR BARBOUR

“I want to thank Lt. Gov. Bryant, Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Nunnelee, and Senators who believe that in these dire budget times we cannot do business as usual. The Senate’s bipartisan vote to give the Governor more flexibility to make needed budget cuts makes a strong statement for responsible, effective management of scarce state fiscal resources and will reassure taxpayers the constitutional mandate to balance the budget will be met. I hope the House will follow suit.”
