Cuts are bad, but eating the babies is no problem still.
With the race for governor entering its final two weeks, Democratic Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor on Monday urged his Republican opponent, Gov. Sonny Perdue, to stop cuts to the state’s schools.
State Republicans, meanwhile, continued to hammer away at Taylor on ethics charges, claiming he took illegal campaign contributions.
Taylor used a news conference at the state Capitol to call on Perdue to sign a pledge vowing to veto any additional cuts to education funding. He cited a story by The Associated Press that found that some systems in the state have been grappling with a state funding formula shortfall by cutting programs, raising local taxes or dipping into their reserves.
