Rep. Drew MacEwen talks about budget with KMAS as legislative session comes to close


As the 2016 legislative session begins to wind down, several key issues continue to occupy the attention of lawmakers. Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, talked with KMAS about the supplemental budget.  He explained that the House majority party has embarked on extensive policy changes, which is uncommon during a supplemental budget year. At the same time, the Senate has tailored a plan that leans toward the more traditional adjustments. The two proposals are approximately $400 million apart. “That,” said MacEwen, “is a truckload of money.”
