Leaders Send Letter to Henry

Dear Governor Henry,

Thank you for your letter inviting us to discuss the Fiscal Year 2008 budget. Before such a meeting is scheduled, please provide us with a copy of your comprehensive, detailed alternative to the Legislature’s bipartisan budget plan. We look forward to meeting with you once we have received your alternative proposal and compared it to the Legislature’s bipartisan budget plan. The bipartisan budget in HB 1234 has been open to the public for two weeks. We presume your alternative plan will be similarly open and detailed.

The budget adopted by the Legislature through HB 1234 is a constitutionally-mandated balanced budget based on revised revenue estimates adopted by the Board of Equalization in February. Inasmuch as your Executive Budget was prepared using revenue estimates that are no longer valid, we would like to see your alternative plan reflecting the revised revenue estimates.


Mike Morgan
Senate President Pro Tempore

Glenn Coffee
Senate Co-President Pro Tempore

Lance Cargill
Speaker of the House
