Governor Bullock: Montana Legislature can mitigate budget cuts by approving selected tax increases

October 3, 2017View for printing

Gov. Steve Bullock Monday said some state spending must be cut to balance the state budget, in the face of a revenue shortage - but that the Legislature could help mitigate those cuts by approving some form of tax increase.

"If legislators will work with me, there is a better way to do this," he told a group of Montana mental-health providers meeting in Helena. "And that's both with certainly some cuts, and transfers, and revenue increases."

"In order to do that, though, I need to have a willing dance partner."
