Analysts Critical of Likely Legislative Approach to WV Budget
Ted Boettner, executive director of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, says it still leaves too large a hole to fill with cuts and temporary patches.
"Legislators would still have to try to find either an additional hundred and $28 million in cuts, or $128 million in revenue," he said. "And we can't continue to kick the can down the road. That's why we need additional revenue to help deal with our budget problem today and tomorrow."
