Statement from State Sen. Ryan Mishler

State Sen. Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen), Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, made the following statement regarding the revenue forecast announced today:

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2020) — “Today’s revenue forecast is promising as we look to the next biennium since the revenue we are projected to bring in is slightly above what we were expecting to see compared to our budget plan. This means that our state will be on firm financial footing as we look to the 2021 budget session, provided the economy continues to grow as forecasted. Conversely, in the event of an economic downturn, it means we will be able to maintain the strong reserves we need to guard our state against cuts to critical government services like K-12 education and public safety.”
