Big day in budget news Thursday. We will carry Governor Perdue’s budget release live Thursday at 10 a.m. Republican leaders will be having their response later in the afternoon so make sure to check back for that reaction.

It will be interesting to see if she continues the temporary taxes that were supposed to expire. She also promised to keep all state funded teachers. How does she pay for that and what gets cut because of it?

The other big items will be amount of jobs lost, the impact on social services, what gets consolidated, and does she include video poker/gaming legalization?

Should be a big day so don’t miss our coverage!
