September 12, 2017

Governor Bullock launches to gather input from Montanans, provide transparency

Agencies today submitted spending reduction proposals to the Governor's Office of Budget and Program Planning as enacted by MCA 17-7-140, marking the first step of several to balance the state's budget.

"Some very tough decisions are going to be made over the coming weeks and months as I work to responsibly balance our budget," said Governor Bullock. "I remain hopeful that the legislature will work with me during this process to identify more responsible solutions to deliver a balanced budget that does not substantially impact education, healthcare, child protective services and public safety."
