A lot of the conversation hovered around the discrepancies in the GOP tax cut plan, where top earners see a sizable tax break and lower income get about $2.67 back a month. But does it make an impact on anyone’s lives?
We also talked about the Joint Finance Committee cutting a childcare funding and not implementing an equal replacement in the state budget — yet.
Pfaff also hints on some some amendments to the budget Democrats want to propose when the Senate votes on Wednesday.
We did take some calls, as well, including one about the a Town of Holland bridge being unusable right now and the plan to fix that.
