JACKSON, Mississippi — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is proposing a state budget that would put more money into education and public safety.
It also seeks to reduce the state’s use of one-time money to pay for recurring expenses.
Bryant recommends spending $6.1 billion.
Bryant unveiled his spending plan Wednesday for fiscal 2015, which begins July 1.
Last week, Bryant and legislative leaders set a revenue estimate of nearly $5.4 billion. It is based on experts’ predictions of how the state economy will perform.
The 14-member Joint Legislative Budget Committee will release its own FY 2015 spending plan in December.
The Legislature will get to vote on a final budget. If they stay on schedule, it should be adopted and sent to the governor by early April.
