DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - State Auditor David Vaudt is set to offer his views on the governor's budget plan.

Vaudt has scheduled a Monday morning press conference to brief reporters on Branstad's budget for the next two years. Vaudt, a Republican, is often critical of lawmakers and the governor over budgeting practices.

Branstad in January unveiled a $6.5 billion spending plan for the fiscal year beginning July 1 that includes funding for new education programs, as well as commercial property tax cuts.

Republicans who hold a majority in the state House have called for spending a little less than the governor, and Democrats who control the Senate have proposed spending several hundred million dollars more.
