Governor Bob Holden is indicating the February 15th date for reaching a deal with the Legislature on the sale of tobacco securitization bonds might not be etched in stone, after. Holden says that while time is running out, he will not announce cuts to education if it appears, by this Saturday, that lawmakers are making significant progress. But, he adds, the “drop dead” date isn’t too far off. Holden and Republican leaders in the Legislature are at odds over a securitization plan. Holden insists he will have no choice but to call for withholdings to education if no deal is reached.
