(Boston) - "Fiscal sanity is as rare on Beacon Hill as that white giraffe spotted in Africa yesterday," Paul Craney said today, urging the members of his advocacy group, the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, to celebrate as Governor Charlie Baker presents his budget proposal this afternoon. "Governor Baker, unlike his predecessor, won't stick his head in the sand and ignore the damage a bloated budget causes our economy. We look forward to watching him make tough short-term choices that ensure the Commonwealth's long-term health."
Baker's budget is expected to contain lots of level funding and belt tightening as he plots a path which will close the gap between revenues and expenditures.
The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance advocates for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability in state government and increased economic opportunity for the people of our Commonwealth.
