Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chair Corey Stewart says there will be "hell to pay" if former Gov. Tim Kaine's budget proposal is accepted.

As neighboring counties deal with the prospect of more painful budget cuts, leaders in Prince William County say things don't look quite as bad from where they're sitting.

Board Chair Corey Stewart says he feels relatively good about the county's financial situation right now and proudly points out, "the average tax bill in Prince William County today is actually lower than it was in 2006."

Stewart says he and his colleagues managed that by making strategic cuts starting four years ago, before the economy got really bad.

The county still has tough budget choices to make this year, however, administrators say non-profit organizations supported by county money may be targeted for cuts.
