$40 million in the bank

Article posted on February 11, 2018

As expected, there was no news from the Governor on the map today; we’ll probably hear tomorrow.  The Sunday papers had a number of stories on this issue and the outcomes of both the Republican and Democrat State Committee meetings held yesterday.  Didn’t see much else of interest including any stories about the Governor’s budget address held on Tuesday.  I thought there would be an editorial or two about his proposals, but the map overshadowed the rather ho-hum address.  As forecast, there was nothing new and exciting, just another call for higher spending and higher taxes.  The really good news is that largely because of a growing national economy, we’re starting this year with $40 million in the bank instead of $1.5 billion in the red.
