Governor Bob Holden states his objections to the state budget approved by lawmakers for public schools, saying he will veto it. Holden says the $224-Million cut from the education budget cuts too deep and in the end doesn’t really save the state money. Holden has now announced his intention to veto the budget bills funding health, mental health, social services, higher education and education. He says he hopes to have his review of the 12 bills that make up the operating budget for the state by tomorrow, when he might announce the date to convene a special session to revisit the budget.
