Supervisors discuss county’s economy

As the governor and state agencies pour over budget requests this fall, the Marshall County Board of Supervisors discussed the ramifications with county consultant Gary Anderson.

He said the state is looking at where it can make more tax cuts.

“Governor Bryant wants to get rid of the corporate franchise tax and make adjustments to the budget,” he told supervisors. “The lieutenant governor wants to get the fat out and says there is still fat in the budget (agency budget requests).”

Anderson said some of the tax cuts and agency cuts could be a Republican ploy in the run-up of the next election and the state leadership seems to be taking their lead from Washington.

“The governor wants to grow the state economy, not the state budget,” Anderson said.
