Governor Unveils $18.6 Billion Budget Plan

In Atlanta today, Gov. Sonny Perdue unveiled an $18.6 billion budget plan. The plan is set to boost state spending for the second straight year, increasing spending by a record $1.2 billion for the upcoming fiscal year.

The budget--designed to pour money into education, jobs, and building safe communities--is supported by educators and state employees.

Perdue assures the state legislature that they will not spend money unwisely as in the past. The governor is not expected to have any problems passing this bill through the legislature.
