Podcast: Twentysomething Billion

Comments Off on Podcast: Twentysomething Billion

With a vote on a state budget deficit solution either late today or tomorrow, we figured let's use our waiting time constructively... by pushing forward our weekly wrap.

This week's Capital Notes Podcast is all deficit agreement, all the time. Of course, we're not sure exactly how big either the proposal is... or the problem, hence the term "Twentysomething."

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I examine some of the big items and finer points, including the dustup over spending cuts to the prison budget and assumptions that may not come true.
