Follow up on state budget
Now a statement on the governor's website indicates that the proposal will be made public at 10 am on Thursday.*
We noted that the governor and his staff have not leaked out bits of the budget, unlike in past years. However, members of the legislature have been indicating their budget and other priorities, rushing to get ahead of the governor. So far, none of these ideas seem to involve UC.**
