Governor’s Budget Proposes Deep Cuts on Top of Past Reductions
January 18, 2012
The Governor’s budget proposes cuts of up to 8.4 percent to many state services that have already been slashed deeply over the last few years. The cuts would leave even more agencies with budgets far below 2008 levels, ranging from public libraries to public health departments. Many other services, including K-12 education, would face lesser cuts or their funding would be flat-lined under the Governor’s plan.
