FY2017 Appropriation Budget

April 6, 2016

The Appropriations Committee is proposing a FY 2017 General Fund budget of $18,141,684,330 ($18.1 billion), which is $569.4 million LESS than the $18.7 billion FY 2017 General Fund budget that was approved just last June. It is a responsible budget that addresses the financial needs of the state right now. We face a budget of tough choices, and the recognition that this budget impacts everyone. Everyone shares the pain.
