Paulsen Issues Statement on New Revenue Numbers

House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) released a statement today regarding the nonpartisan Fiscal Services Agency’s monthly review of the state’s revenue:

“Democrats passed the largest amount of spending in the state’s history, so we shouldn’t be surprised that we’re in this budget mess. House Republican efforts to save over $300 million in cost savings and spark job growth were thwarted by legislative Democrats. The bottom line remains the same: Gov. Culver spent too much and cut too little. House Republicans will continue to look for ways to rebuild Iowa’s economy through hard-working Iowans not big government.”
