Too Early to Talk Taxes

March 3rd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda


Newly elected House Speaker Larry Cretul says it is too early to talk about taxes until the state’s full revenue picture is known. That won’t happen until new revenue estimates are released in March. They are almost certain to show less money than expected just two months ago.

“I think the state of the state is, we need to be concerned. We also need to be braced, perhaps, for some unpopular decisions,” Cretul said. “But I think as we move forward, if we have the opportunity with messaging the current conditions, the folks will understand. The better thing to do is ask, what do you think the state of the taxpayer is? That kind of reveals the state of the state.”

The legislative session ends May 1st. The only constitutional duty lawmakers have is to pass a balanced budget.
