Budget Limits Framed for FY 2019

The Spending Affordability Committee concluded its work this week, making aggressive recommendations regarding the state's lingering structural deficit...but with a "catch." The Committee adopted a goal of reducing 100% of the remaining structural deficit in the budget year ahead - but followed with language to reserve flexibility based on the still-uncertain effects of federal tax and policy legislation. The Committee also envisioned a somewhat higher level of capital spending than recommended earlier by another group - matching last year's action.
