State Treasurer John M. Schroder released the following statement about the special session:

“This special session was prematurely called and was a complete waste of taxpayer dollars. This is very disappointing that the Governor and the Legislature couldn’t reach an agreement during the session on how to achieve financial stability.  If we ever want to right-size government, we have to get serious about implementing true spending reforms and stop relying on temporary revenue measures to plug the budget.”
