A local state senator says the governor acted appropriately when he issued a 10 percent across the board budget cut. Fairfield Democrat Becky Schmitz says it’s a difficult situation, but it was the best decision. Schmitz says Iowa faced a similar situation last year, however not with such a deep cut. She says like then, lawmakers could restore some of the reductions during the upcoming session.
