MTF’s Analysis of the Senate Ways and Means Budget

in
The Senate Ways and Means budget fares well when compared with the three fiscal criteria set out by the Foundation to analyze the FY 2017 budget. Sharing the fiscal approach adopted by the House and the Governor, this spending plan proposes restrained spending growth and no new revenue initiatives. In fact, total SWM spending is less than both the Governor ($56.7 million less) and the House ($46.1 million less) budgets.
