"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.
