Paulsen Statement on Revenue Estimating Conference

House Speaker Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) released the following statement regarding today’s Revenue Estimating Conference revisions to the Fiscal Year 2013 projections and their initial projection for Fiscal Year 2014:

“Today’s report from the Revenue Estimating Conference reaffirms that House Republicans’ strong budget leadership has created certainty for taxpayers.

“We must continue to ensure an efficient and effective state budget that does not spend more than the state takes in. Any additional revenue that isn’t needed to balance the budget or fill the reserve funds should not be spent. It should be returned to the taxpayers.”
