HB 30 Supplemental appropriations; State Fiscal Year July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019

Voted on Friday February 8, 2019

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

The state fiscal year runs from July 01 to June 30 of each year. Because the General Assembly meets at the halfway point during this fiscal year, we are able to "sure up" and correct the budget estimates for the remaining portion of the year as things become more accurate and concrete. We do this every year through the "supplemental" (or little) budget.

Original FY2019 budget passed on 29 March 2018.
$26 Billion total appropriations and comprises $50 billion in total funding.

Few of the highlights of this amendment:
There is a total of $435 million of additional revenue accounted for in this budget.
$238 million of this funding goes to K-12 needs, with 129.9 million toward K12 enrollment growth (added 13,638 new students in Georgia over the period).
For school security grants of $30,000 to each of the 2,314 state schools in Georgia, we have appropriated $69.4 million.
There is an additional $10 million appropriated to emergency disaster relief for the Georgia farmers in counties that are still devastated by Hurricane Michael.
HB 30 increases funding for medicaid by $35.2 million for enrollment growth, Medicare Part B premiums, etc.
