Legislators grill Palin administration over supplemental budget cuts

The Palin administration today began explaining the effects of the proposed cuts to the current year’s budget. In her plan, more than $13 million in unspecified cuts will be left to the individual departments to find.  Senate Finance Co-Chair Lyman Hoffman told Revenue Commissioner Pat Galvin that in making reductions on its own,  the administration is taking the policy-making role away from lawmakers.
