2020-2021 State Budget Summaries
The Governor signed a series of bills, on Friday, April 3, that together constitute the 2020-21 State Budget. Normally, the budget is comprised of ten budget bills; this year, which was unfortunately historic in many ways, the budget was consolidated into nine bills. The most contentious portion of the budget, health and mental hygiene bill, which includes funding for the Medicaid program, was never passed, but instead was absorbed into two other bills, education and state operations. The final adopted budget comes to $178 billion, which despite the challenges with declining revenue from COVID-19, is still higher than last year’s enacted budget of $175 billion.
Here are detailed summary breakdowns of the State Enacted Budget:
