We’ll post a comparison on what you’d do with State Revenue with what the Legislature Passes.
Any year where there’s an increase in state tax revenues the Legislature decides what to do with the money. Give tax refunds? Put more into education? Support agriculture? You only have a set amount of money – you decide what to do with it. Then we’ll see how your spending plan matches up with ours.
Here’s the rules:
- You have $300 million in General Fund tax revenues. You have to spend it all (but can give it back with a tax refund).
- You have 10 categories of choices from our General Fund budget (you won’t see Transportation or other Special Funded departments here).
- You can spend $0 on any items; you can spend $300 million on one item. To make it simpler, you can only use whole numbers. 1 = $1 million.
We will average the survey results to get YOUR budget, and compare that to the final Legislative budget. I don’t know about you, but I’m really curious to see how the two budgets compare.
