(From the Missouri Republican Party)
Missouri Republican Party Executive Director Matt Wills issued the following statement today in response to Governor Nixon’s announcement that he will withhold increases to education funding:
“Jay Nixon once again showed his true colors when it comes to education in the state of Missouri. Republicans in the Missouri Legislature took action this year, increasing funding for education by over $100 million and finally offering a fix to the school transfer problem.
“By vowing to withhold budget increases to K-12 and higher education, Nixon proved again that he does not care about education more than himself.
“Unfortunately, yet unsurprisingly, this has become old hat for Jay Nixon. And like President Obama, Nixon has lost all credibility in governing of our great state. Missourians are tired of the Obama/Nixon agenda, we deserve better.”
