Gov. Holcomb Releases Budget Wish List

Governor Holcomb is asking state lawmakers for $34 billion dollars in his budget to run the state for the next two years.

Holcomb’s budget increases school spending by two-percent each of the next two years.

Schools had been hoping for three-percent.

Other agencies would average a two-percent increase, except for a 300-million-dollar shot of cash for child welfare.

The administration projects more than a two-billion-dollar surplus at the end of two years.
