St. Rep. Lance Yednock says the governor’s budget proposal during the State of the State speech is a starting point for the conversation the legislature needs to have. He likes putting extra money into pensions and a rainy day fund. And he wants the state to keep paying down the bill backlog.

Yednock says he wants to make sure violence reduction money actually reduces violence and he wants to support the police. The Ottawa Democrat says supporting schools, maintaining roads and bridges, and supporting health care are the state government’s core functions. He says the state must support those core functions. He hopes the state can afford tax relief like the governor is asking for without sacrificing the core functions.
