Gov’s Budget ProposalFebruary 10, 2017
The governor’s proposed budget is the first step in the process. It will be digested....reviewed....and ultimately changed numerous times before the Legislature approves a final budget later this spring. The initial numbers look good for Vernon. Yes, we see cuts in our education grant (ECS)....but more than make up for it in a new line item for students with special needs. You can see Vernon’s state funding increases significantly (The Cumulative Total lines are the combined totals of about 15 separate statutory grants, not just the two shown).
