Gov. Chet Culver's October 2009 announcement of 10 percent across-the-board cuts in state budgets was the second year this had happened, and was much higher than the 1.5 percent cut in 2008. In the caption where this is called an "emergency" clinic, I'm playing off Republican rumblings that Culver and the Democrats could have avoided such a massive cut by passing and signing a more responsible budget earlier in the year. In other words, this didn't have to be the crisis it turned out to be. Read more in the Cedar Rapids Gazette story at the link below.
