A call for quick action to plug a big hole in the state budget.
It's coming from state Representative Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), who says the Governor and lawmakers can't waste time in dealing with a budget shortfall that's could reach $600 million. Nass wants spending cuts to be enacted now.
The Whitewater Republican says he's concerned by a lack of urgency, since government is spending more money every day. He says the problem needs to be dealt with up front, rather than waiting until the Legislature is backed into a corner.
Nass is worried many of his legislative colleagues would consider raising taxes and fees, which would be a big problem.
