House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs issued the following statement in response to the $47 million revenue shortfall for the month of January:

"These numbers are like a financial nightmare, and it's a nightmare that will end tragically if the Governor doesn't wake up soon. There are only so many excuses and short term fixes available, but the Governor has tapped most of them out. How much worse does it have to get before Governor Brownback admits his failed economic experiment is leading to a meltdown of every public service upon which Kansans depend?"
