Governor Barbour wants to decrease spending

Governor Haley Barbour wants legislators and state agency directors to tighten up spending during these tough economic times.

The cause of this request is lower tax collections resulting from the national economic crisis.

Barbour would like agencies to trim two percent from the current year's budget, and cut four percent for the next fiscal year.
