Culver outlines $6.2 million state budget

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Wednesday Governor Chet Culver outlined his $6.2 billion state budget for the next fiscal year.  

The cuts add up to more than $87 million and will likely force significant layoffs of state workers.

Culver proposes dipping into the state's cash reserves for more than $200 million and borrowing $700 million more to be repaid with gambling profits over the next 20 years to pay for storm recovery.
