Today House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) released the following statement on Gov. Chet Culver’s recent budget proposal:
“The governor’s budget spends more money than it takes in and will increase the burden on property taxpayers. Once again, decisions in Des Moines are going to drive up property taxes across the state. It’s irresponsible and will be costly for Iowans.
“House Republicans will dive into budgets, ask tough questions, and identify savings and government waste while being responsible with taxpayers’ money.”
