Republican leaders discuss budgets, initiative hearings with media

Republican leaders joined the media Tuesday to discuss majority party budget proposals in the House and Senate, and a recent decision by Democrats to hold public hearings for three of six initiatives to the Legislature late in the 60-day legislative session.

In addition to questions about initiatives and budgets, legislators responded to reporter inquiries about collective bargaining for legislative employees and rebates for high gas prices caused by the Climate Commitment Act.

Joining the media from the House were Republican Leader Drew Stokesbary and Rep. Chris Corry, the House Republican budget leader. Participating from the Senate were Republican Leader John Braun and Sen. Lynda Wilson, the Senate Republican budget leader.
