In odd-numbered years, the legislature passes not one but three separate budgets for our state.
The operating budget is the one most people think of as “the state budget.” It funds the operations of our state – everything from K-12 education, to higher education, to human services, to corrections, to natural resources and more. One of my recent newsletters covered some of the highlights of the operating budget.
The transportation budget, meanwhile, funds our roads, bridges, state patrol, and ferry operations. My next newsletter will focus on highlights from this budget.
