thHouse Republican Leader Themis Klarides released this statement today on the Growing Deficit

“The state’s finances, of course, will continue to decay because we have failed to institute any significant changes to stabilize our finances. These new deficit numbers were foreshadowed by last month’s job loss report,” she said.  “But we do not have to accept the ‘permanent deficits’ as the OPM [Office of Policy and Management] chief has described the situation.”

She added, “Republicans offered reasonable alternatives to address the immediate deficit and added a five-year plan that would have resulted in actual surpluses.”
