Battle of the Budget (No. 402)

First Aired Thursday, January 25, 2007

Battle lines have already been drawn between Democrats and Republicans over how the money should be spent. Governor Schweitzer is calling for $150 million in tax cuts. Republicans are rolling out a "Handshake with Montana" package that includes property tax cuts but includes holding on to a chunk of the budget surplus for a rainy day. Montana Focus covers strategies that both sides plan to employ during the 90-day session. This show is available for viewing, free of charge, online.
