Governor to lay out budget recommendations today

JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant is preparing to release his budget recommendations for the coming year.

The Republican will hold a news conference this afternoon at the state Capitol to unveil his spending plan 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.

All 122 House members and 52 senators 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.
