Governor Knowles addresses the biennium-budget 1969-1971 stalemate at a press conference. Reading his notes, he states how the entire Democratic party voted against the budget-tax bill, primarily because of proposed cuts to the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), a welfare program. He mentions President Nixon’s agenda to get people “off the relief roll and onto the pay roll.” The lack of budget support forced a review of the bill, including both parties. The footage then cuts to a two representatives at the press conference, one a leading Democratic, who acknowledges Knowles’ willingness to include his party in the budget review when the Republican House majority “told them to go away.”
