A Republican leader who stood against Governor Bob Holden’s request to use the Rainy Day Fund at the end of the legislative session says it’s time for the Governor to release hundreds of millions in withholdings. Governor Holden announced $230-Million in withholdings after House Republicans refused him access to the Rainy Day Fund. He since has announced the state should end the fiscal year Sunday with a $300-Million balance. House Republican Leader Catherine Hanaway disagrees with Holden that the state needs that money to maintain cash flow. She urges him to restore the $20-Million nursing home cut and the 83-Million dollar cut to state colleges. She won’t claim vindication in light of a brighter fiscal picture.
