State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says he likes much of what he heard from the Governor about the proposed budget: "Well I’m really impressed and glad that the Governor's budget is a more realistic budget than what I've seen submitted by Kulongoski. Since I've been in the building, Governor Kitzhaber has acknowledged that we have some financial issues in the State; and that he's presented a budget that we're calling flat budgeting. He started with what we had last year and developed his budget on that!" Whisnant says he likes that Kitzhaber also "front loaded" the budget with education funds so that school districts would have more time to react to possible cuts and changes in how things are funded. He says there are a few things he would change about the proposal, but again, overall he is pleased with the budget.
