Governor's Budget Recommendations

The governor has made his recommendations for the appropriations for the coming biennium. While his budget document does not show allocations as specifically as the Legislative Budget Board recommendations do, the budget does show that the Governor is recommending more than $100 million less for the Department of State Health Services than the Department is requesting.

The Governor's priorities for increased funding include:
  • Reform child and adultprotective services
  • Create emerging technology fund
  • Add offices of inspectors general
  • Increase skills development fund
  • Expand mentoring initiatives
  • Improve student financial aid
  • Etc.
