Relatively Minor Differences with Georgia House’s Proposal
The Georgia State Senate made relatively minor adjustments to the House of Representatives version of House Bill 106 (HB 106). New in the Senate version are additional funds for the Technical College System, restored from cuts the governor proposes; money for a new economic development program and restored funding from the governor’s proposed cuts for the nutrition program in the Department of Education. The Senate also reduced Medicaid funding the House appropriated to the Medicaid program to restore the governor’s cuts to provider rates. Download the budget analysis.
