ChartSmart: 2019-21 Budget Basics

April 8, 2019

Welcome back to ChartSmart!

Over the next few weeks, the Joint Finance Committee will tour the state hosting public hearings on the 2019-21 biennial budget proposal. As always, we’ll be there to keep the public and the hardworking taxpayers informed.

As the budget season begins moving along in full force, today, we’re taking a look at basics like overall spending, borrowing, and government positions. We’ll review what the biggest agencies are, and the amount by which their spending has grown since the last budget.

In the weeks and months to come, we’ll continue publishing our ChartSmart series and begin honing in on specific topics. What would you like to know about the budget?
