Lawmakers in Salem are re-balancing the current budget right now to make up for less revenue coming in to the state. Representative Jason Conger says over the past two years the state spent more money that what ended up coming; so they had to re-balance the budget to make up for the shortfall. "To fund the remainder of the biennium we either needed to find $75 million in cuts or $75 million in additional funds, to fund agencies and services includes this of course includes K-12 education." He says the Emergency Board anticipated this and has been working to make the cuts not as painful. He says they used a combination of reserve funds and shifting money around to make up for the shortfall.
