Peter, are you sure about this?

I love Peter Luke, but something about this statement doesn't sound right...

Now Granholm, Dillon and Bishop have to agree on a 2008 state budget plan that is way behind schedule. The three have already agreed to some $1.5 billion in new revenue through an unspecified combination of income and sales tax increases and the elimination of some tax breaks.

The apparent goal is get those taxes approved by July 1 and then begin work on the spending plans of individual departments. The 2008 fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

They have? What was I going on about then?

Well. That makes life easier. My work here is done.

The governor insists on talking about this though- check her out at her new web site at All the facts and figures you would ever need- so you don't have to listen to me or Peter Luke ever again. Although you should listen to Peter, 'cause he knows what he's talking about.

The web site is an excellent idea. Hmmmm, it does seem to me that I've heard that idea somewhere before....
