HB 97 Appropriations Act - Savings - 2015 Appropriations Act – Savings

Because the General Assembly chose to include different policies in the 2015 budget bill, Civitas Action did not grade the budget bill as a whole. We have chosen several important policies to grade separately, $600 million of savings is one of those policies.

A total of $600 million is set aside in the state’s Rainy Day Fund ($200 million) and Repair and Renovations ($400 million). This responsible move to shore up savings to help insulate the state budget against future revenue dips is considered conservative.
