Paulsen Issues Statement on REC Estimate

Today House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) released the following statement on the Revenue Estimating Conference recent report on Iowa’s revenue:

“The Legislature cannot use this slight increase in revenue as an excuse to spend more taxpayer money. As we’ve learned over the past three years, excessive spending for short term goals is not the answer.

“House Republicans offered $290 million in savings this session and over $600 million in savings in the last two sessions. Spending less, saving more and enacting reasonable savings is the path House Republicans prefer.”
