Montana Governor Bullock’s budget boosts preschool, pays for Medicaid expansion, plans for infrastructure

Gov. Steve Bullock on Thursday pitched a substantial investment in preschool, as well as fully paying for Medicaid expansion and an infrastructure package for urban and rural parts of the state in his two-year budget proposal.

The budget will spend close to $10.3 billion, including state and federal money, an increase over the last budget. It predicts modest growth in the amount of money Montana brings in through taxes, about 3 percent in the first year of the budget and nearly 4 percent in the second year.

It also puts aside $303 million for the state’s rainy day fund.
