Iowa Senate leader says budget cuts likely

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A key lawmaker says it's "highly likely" Governor Chet Culver will issue across-the-board spending cuts this month to wipe out looming budget deficits.

Senate Majority Leader Michael Gonstal says Gvernor Clver can only cut the budget through across-the-board reductions which Gonstal says is likely.

He recommends Clver cut deeply and if tax revenues improve, lawmakers can restore some of the funding.
