Comparisons between the Department and Governor’s budget proposals

The Department routinely compares competing budget proposals in order to assess the assumptions and review financial changes that may have an impact on the Department’s operations. These comparisons will be updated throughout the legislative session as the Governor, House, and Senate independently produce their spending plans.
