There really is no surplus. Perhaps in February things will look better. Funding public education growth, stop using one time money for on going commitments, reducing debt and no tax increases are great goals that I believe will be hit. The rest will be interesting to see what happens. There are still 2 life-safety items that total $40 to $50 million I would like to see funded, and are not, and we are already over $300 million short initially.
I do think Governor Herbert will get many of his priorities.
