July 2014 Group Watch: No New Taxes, But Job Cuts Coming

That the message from the leader of the Alabama Senate. Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh said recently he would look at proposals to close the gap in the state’s $1.8 billion General Fund budget, which pays for most non-education programs in the state. Marsh said he believed an additional 9 percent reduction in the state’s work force is achievable. Marsh added that such reductions would be achieved by attrition and said this is an opportunity to further “right-size government.” Marsh said that other measures are on the table including consolidation of the state’s two budgets; removing earmarks that tie up more than four-fifths of the state’s tax revenue and the elimination of some deductions and exemptions.
