The leader of the Democrats in the State Senate accuses Republicans of talking one game and playing another. Senate Leader Peter Kinder, a Republican, calls on Governor Bob Holden not to use so-called “imaginary revenue” to balance the state budget – not to suggest a budget that needs more taxes to be balanced. But Senate Democrat Leader Ken Jacob charges Republcans are doing just that with a proposed children’s mental health service bill. Jacob suggests Republicans might be using some “imaginary revenue” of their own to pay for the program. Senators do not disagree the program would be a good one. They’ve given it tentative approval despite Jacobs’ questions about paying for it.
