Eldridge Concerned How State Cuts Will Affect Sudbury

The state senator said discussions on taxation need to happen.

Gov. Deval Patrick ordered spending cuts across state government on Tuesday to close a projected $540 million budget hole, the Associated Press reported.

Patrick blamed the economoic uncertainty caused by the looming ‘‘fiscal cliff.’’

State Sen. Jamie Eldridge said he has reviewed the cuts and does have concerns in regards to the school district, the bussing of homeless students and council on aging, among others.

He also said serious discussions about taxation of the wealthy needs to happen at the municipal level.

A call to Town Manager Maureen Valente seeking comment was not returned.

The governor said he would use his authority under state law to cut executive branch spending by $225 million, equivalent to about 1 percent of the budget for those agencies, according to the AP.

Patrick plans ask the Legislature to approve a similar 1 percent reduction in the budgets of the Massachusetts court system and other state constitutional offices and a $9 million cut in unrestricted local aid to cities and towns, the AP reported.
