It’s 4pm on a Friday, what is your Governor doing?
Issuing an Executive Order cutting the newly minted FY09-10 budget by 5%.
Yes, the budget that the General Assembly just passed and Governor just signed is already so far from reality that the Governor is taking steps to adjust it.
This move just begs so many questions to be answered, namely:
1. Did the General Assembly and Governor know the budget was out of balance when they passed it two weeks ago? If so, did they mislead the public by passing it?
2. Why release this on a Friday afternoon at 4pm? (I think we know the answer to that one).
3. Why did Perdue wait until after she hired a new $136,000 communications adviser to announce a budget cut?
There will be much, much more on this next week.
