The Governor’s Budget includes

•  $62 million for the pre-K to 12 funding formula,

•  An additional $10 million for school transportation,

•  Steady funding for four-year colleges, 

•  Small amounts of new funding for mental health and opioid addiction,

•  $20 million of new federal money targeted to the purchase of child care, and

•  $4 million in additional funding for Parents as Teachers.

In addition, while the Department of Transportation has traditionally relied on dedicated funds, such as the gas tax and federal transportation funding, the Governor recommends $100 million in general revenue funding for transportation – an increase of $85 million over last year.
