Governor Vilsack has asked the managers of state agencies to identify budget cuts — and to shift money to priority areas. While the state has a nearly Billion dollar surplus, Vilsack says that extra cash should be spent on one-time projects rather than on-going operations. Vilsack says it’s time to quote — put the brakes on state spending. And Vilsack says the state’s regular budget — not counting the huge surplus — is so tight, any tax cuts must be targeted. By attracting more people to the state, Vilsack says the state’s tax rolls grow.
