Bleeding Heartland: Culver should release details about proposed budget cuts

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Governor Chet Culver announced on Tuesday that he will reduce Iowa's
general budget by $40 million during the current budget year (which
runs through June 2009) and will ask the state legislature to retract
an appropriation of $37 million to replace the Wallace Building, which
houses many state offices. The Des Moines Register reported that the
$40 million in cuts will come from "freezing most hiring, halting
out-of-state travel, reducing purchases and making cuts to the state's
public universities." ... After reviewing those recommendations, Culver
decided how to reduce spending by $40 million, which represents about
two-thirds of one percent of the current-year $6.1 billion budget.
