House Appropriations Subcommittees Revisit Budget
The House Appropriations Subcommittees held meetings all week to delve into the Governor’s budget recommendations. The Committees heard testimony from agencies and other groups regarding their work and the potential impacts of the proposed cuts. The Appropriations Committees thoroughly reviewed each budget item and it appears they will make funding direct services a priority in their final budget recommendations.
ACCG has been working with the Governor’s Office, the Office of Planning and Budget, and the subcommittee chairs to determine real impacts of cuts to direct local level services. We are encouraged by the willingness of all to listen to our concerns and the comments and direction the subcommittee chairs have taken during the past week and look forward to the amended budget presentation and passage by the House in the upcoming week.

Please advise your local delegations of any items that are of a particular concern to your county.
