In the conference call, Huntsman, who dropped out of the 2012 presidential race early in the year, said he supported a proposal for lawmakers to forgo their salaries if they are unable to pass a budget. Huntsman also said that the only way to avoid impending spending cuts and tax increases referred to as the fiscal cliff is for legislators to reach across the aisle.
