GBPI releases Georgia Budget Primer
In the Georgia Budget Primer 2019, Georgia Budget & Policy Institute (GBPI) explains the state's revenue collections and spending plan for FY 19 which began July 1.
GBPI reports that 64 percent of the $1.2 billion revenue increase is due to natural growth. In addition to natural growth, Georgia’s opioid crisis is driving an 11.1 percent increase in the number of children in foster care (December 2016 to February 2018). GBPI provides analysis of the FY 19 Georgia Human Services budget at Georgia Human Services Budget Primer for State Fiscal Year 2019.
