Statement on Consensus Revenue Hearing Forecast

I just released the following statement regarding today’s annual consensus revenue hearing to discuss the state’s fiscal outlook for FY 2014:

“Clearly the economic information presented at today’s hearing mandates that we move forward with unprecedented fiscal discipline, clear funding priorities and aggressive action to strengthen and expand our state's employment base.

We need to take further steps to get more people back to work, and to help others keep the jobs they have. Failing to do so will risk even more uncertainty with the budget, and fiscal instability.

There is no time to waste in acting to boost the climate for creating jobs, and build toward stability for the future.”
