Nunez: Gov's package too big
|According to the Bee:|
Núñez, appearing at a breakfast meeting of The Bee's Capitol Bureau, said Assembly Democrats could support a more modest, four-year bond package of up to $30 billion. He said Democrats worry that debt-service payments on a larger package could cut into funds needed for public education.
"We can't live with $68 billion," he said. "We don't want to go beyond $30 (billion)."
Nunez also has the quote of the week (even if it's only Tuesday). On the debt cap, he said:
"Let's just say it's like asking the Republicans to raise taxes."
