LaValle said the new budget reduces state spending, does not raise taxes and creates new private sector jobs. The state’s new fiscal year began April 1st.

“Since last year we have closed $13 billion in deficits --$10 billion last year and $3 billion this year -- without raising taxes and fees,” Senator LaValle said. “State government is living within the same two percent spending cap as local governments and school districts and we are doing it by controlling and reigning-in spending and reducing the size of government.”
