Lawmakers Can’t Agree on Dealing with Cuts and Taxes

Lawmakers in Helena, heard Gov. Steve Bullock’s proposals to deal with the state’s projected $227 million budget deficit. One thing that is causing controversy is the idea that taxes need to be raised. Most Republican members are against new taxes. Bullock is pushing for a temporary tax. Some wonder if there is such a thing as a “temporary” tax.

Many government agencies are being asked to accept cuts. And while they acknowledging the state needs to cut its budget each agency says cuts will hurt citizens of Montana.

Proposals to raise taxes and add fees, are being met with a lot of resistance. Before the special session Republican lawmakers held committee meetings to try to figure out how to make up the budget shortfall without any new taxes.
