A House appropriations committee calls the governor's budget plan hypocritical.
Justin Herndon has more on this story.
Representative Dennis Bonner chairs the committee and says the governor has not given a good explaination for why he gets to keep money while he cuts other state office budgets.
The committee passed a plan that would cut the governor's budget by 40 percent and layoff 10 full time employees - a quarter of the governor's staff.
In Jefferson City, Justin Herndon.
