Tough budget choices for state

Gov. Mitch Daniels has ordered a string
of budget cuts
as the recession hammers tax revenue, and the upcoming General Assembly promises to generate squabbles
over what little money is left to spend.

If you were governor, what would you cut first? Or would you propose a tax increase or chart another way out of the doldrums?

Another question: Should states that havenâ??t kept their fiscal houses in order be bailed out by the federal government?
