Missouri Budget

Missouri state budget for the 2012 fiscal year is already looking grim.
The 2012 budget, which begins next July, is already excpected to be 600-million dollars short according to Governor Jay Nixon's office.
The deficit is being blamed on an anticipated loss of 860 million dollars lost in federal funding.
Linda Luebbering (loo-ber-ing) is Governor Nixons Budget Director. She says the State is already looking to make reductions.
Lubbering adds next year's budget cuts would be spread out as evenly as possible.
