Gregoire Unveils Budget To Patch 1.1 Billion Deficit

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Just days after unveiling her two-year budget, Gov. Chris Gregoire has introduced a supplemental budget meant to plug a $1.1 billion hole through June.

Gregoire's supplemental budget was released Friday. It builds on the work started by lawmakers during a one-day special session last week. The Legislature's bipartisan plan cut about $590 from the deficit through a mix of actions, including reducing state spending and raiding off-budget accounts.

Many of Gregoire's proposed reductions mirror those that she announced on Wednesday as part of her two year budget that goes through mid 2013. That budget made a series of cuts to deal with a projected $4.6 billion deficit over the next two years.
