Governor Wants Primary Budget Reserve Guarded

January 23, 2009, 5:30 PM

Governor Wants Primary Budget Reserve Guarded
Governor Rounds says state government's primary budget reserve should be kept intact, even in tough budget times like this.

The Republican governor disagrees with a proposal by Democrats to use $15 million from the budget reserve to help balance a state budget being squeezed by a drop in tax collections.  The budget reserve contains about $43 million. Rounds says it should be set aside for emergencies that can be met with one-time spending, like the costs of a blizzard or forest fire.

Senate Democratic Leader Scott Heidepriem says the budget reserve was created specifically for times such as the state currently faces.

The state has a second savings account called the property tax reduction fund. Rounds wants to take $35 million from that fund this budget year and $28 million next year.
