Governor Holden says House Republicans have put next year’s budget in chaos by denying him the right to use Rainy Day money to cover a $200-Million shortfall in the current budget. The Governor held a hastily called news conference not long after the House denied him access to emergency reserves. Holden says House Republicans have created a fiscal emergency. Holden says he held negotiating sessions with House Republican Leader Catherine Hanaway and other House Republican leaders and had thought a deal would be reached. The Governor had counted on Republicans in the House to follow the lead of the Republican-controlled Senate. Holden called on House Republicans to reconsider their vote and give him authority to use Rainy Day dollars. Otherwise, he said state programsand services will be cut.
