There was testimony with no further action on HJR 45 and HJR Amendment 1 in committee today. Very good testimony in opposition to this Resolution that would inject the General Assembly into collective bargaining process. Amendment 1 filed by Republican Leader Tom Cross would prohibit any pay increases “associated with any and all collectively bargained contracts throughout State government until the State has demonstrated 2 years of operating surpluses.” Point of fact – the state hasn’t “demonstrated an operating surplus” since 2001 – What does that tell you?
