Otter Waiting For Details Of Any Fiscal Cliff Cuts
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter is taking a wait-and-see approach on the impact to the state of federal funding cuts in the wake of any fiscal cliff deal.
In June, Otter asked all state agencies to identify how much money they get from the federal government and to calculate at least a 20 percent reduction in those funds. Otter asked agency heads to report back to him by August.
The Idaho Statesman reports that (http://bit.ly/TChSgX ) Otter has yet to share publicly the results of his assignment.
On Monday, Otter spokesman Mark Warbles said they are waiting for a report from President Obama's staff spelling out federal funding cuts for states.
Warbis said the state will then assess impacts on an agency-by-agency basis.

Deputies and firefighters responded to a car crash in Spokane Valley Monday afternoon near the intersection of 4th and Blake. Deputies say the SUV was heading south on Blake when it was struck by another car, causing it to flip onto its top in a nearby yard. One person was able to get out of the SUV, but the driver had to be pulled out through the rear lift gate. Injuries appear to be minor. >>
