Clarion Ledger – Bryant’s budget won’t fly

Gov. Phil Bryant’s plans to sell one of the state’s planes might save the state a little money, but when it comes to a serious budget plan to fund state government, his Executive Budget Recommendation just won’t fly .

Bryant’s FY 2013 budget recommendation calls for cuts to state agency budgets of 5.53 percent and cutting K-12 schools by 3 percent.

He also called for suspending Personnel Board rules, which would allow agency heads to more easily fire state workers.
