Governor Napolitano and the State Senate are touting their new “bipartisan” budget compromise but the Devil appears to be in the details. While the state is experiencing a 2 billion dollar deficit the Senate plan ADDS $1 billion in spending for new construction and renovation at the state universities. They may be in need of some updating but is this the year to spend a billion dollars? Fiscal conservatives are mad at the smoke and mirrors with the lottery income and the huge spending increase. There will likely be a shortfall in the predicted lottery revenue and the difference will have to come out of the general fund, further exacerbating the deficit. Social conservatives are disturbed by the push to generate more revenue from a scheme that has a negative impact on those least able to afford the cost of gambling. Take about crAZy. Nice work guys.
