Holcomb Asks for $34 Billion Budget to Increase School Spending

Posted on January 11th, 2019

Governor Holcomb is asking state lawmakers for $34 billion dollars in his budget to run the state for the next two years. Holcomb’s budget increases school spending by two-percent each of the next two years. Schools had been hoping for three-percent. Other agencies would average a two-percent increase, except for a 300-million-dollar shot of cash for child welfare. The administration projects a more than two-billion-dollar surplus at the end of two years.
