Counties Raise Concerns with Budget Plan, Reject “Piling On”

MACo testified today in the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee on the Administration’s Budget Reconciliation and Financing Act (BRFA), SB 141. MACo First Vice President Wayne Cooper and Executive Director Michael Sanderson offered testimony acceding to the slate of cuts presented as part of the budget plan, but warning against additional reductions. Commissioner Cooper offered, “we’re just not going to be able to handle any more cuts… we just can’t.”

MACo also submitted testimony on two other broad budget-reconciling bills heard in the committee, SB 840 and SB 1004.
