Different suggested solutions, same problem

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- In the legislature Thursday, liberal and conservative groups were asking for different approaches to resolving the budget shortfall.

The conservative anti-tax group Iowans for Tax Relief is calling for major changes -- such as selling off the state's prisons to private groups, eliminating the department of economic development and cutting state worker pay by five percent.

The Coalition for Better Iowa is calling for legislators to consider ways to increase state revenue as well as cut spending.
