State Senators have begun discussing just how they will debate Governor Bob Holden’s tobacco bond proposal. Holden has threatened to cut nearly $259-Million in state funding for public schools and an additional $91-Million in college funding if the Legislature rejects his idea to turn about a billion dollars in money from the national tobacco settlement into bonds to cover a projected $350-Million hole in the current budget. Kinder also complains Holden has not been forthright with Republicans in the Legislature, preferring to disclose his legislative proposals to the press before talking with legislators.
