Local legislators look forward to passing bills in the new year, and saying goodbye to the budget woes of 2017.

Both Rep. Dan Moul (R-91) and Sen. Rich Alloway II (R-33) were unhappy with the decision to borrow money against future revenue in order to patch the budget deficit. Moul said borrowing $1.5 billion against a tobacco settlement is "no way to run a government" and likened the action to stealing money from future generations.
