Senators right now are debating a motion by Sen. Jim Moylan to defund all deputy directors within the Executive Branch.
His motion will allow the governor to continue hiring deputy directors, but she would have to fund them from her office's budget.
Sen. Regine Lee is asking whether the action would be Organic. Office of Finance and Budget director Steve Guerrero is informing her that it is completely within the purview of the Legislature to cut funding wherever senators deem fit.
