Budget Bill Proposes 10 Percent Cuts in At Least 48 Health Programs
Governor Walker’s biennial budget bill proposes 10 percent cuts in most of the Department of Health Services’ appropriations of state General Purpose Revenue (GPR) and Program Revenue (PR). These cuts – totaling about $7.7 million per year – include 48 different appropriations, listed on pp. 249-250 of the Legislative Fiscal Bureau Summary of the budget bill.
In the DOA letter released last Thursday, the Walker Administration proposed a long list of mostly technical amendments, but those recommendations included exempting one of the 48 health programs from the proposed 10 percent cut. Read more about the proposed 10 percent cuts in a WCCF blog posted today.
