Today on NewsTalk, Montgomery County Councilman Hans Riemer explained why he and his colleagues felt forced to make some tough budget moves this month when they put the finishing touches on a spending plan for FY 2012. This is the third year in a row the Council’s budget deliberations have been impacted by the recession, and county workers are definitely feeling it. We also discussed the county’s changing demographics and its transportation needs.
Also: Politico’s Ken Vogel talked about the Sarah Palin bus tour. Pete Tucker of thefightback.org previewed tomorrow’s DC cabbie protest. And Alex Parker talked about the NBA Finals, which get underway tonight.
