First Budget up for final passage: Dept. of Community Health

This budget is going up 6.3%. A key opportunity that was missed was removing 19 and 20 yr-olds from receiving optional Medicaid benefits. The new budget is increased to just over $12 billion from last year's $11.2 billion. The governor said she was cutting another $435 million from the budget this year. Get out your calculator; when all the budgets are totaled up, you find that the governor is using "fuzzy math."
