The top takeaway from the 2020 budget proposal by the Dunleavy Administration, which was rolled out today, include consolidations and efficiencies, and also the elimination of major programs:
Overall, state spending would be $4.6 billion, which is $1.6 billion less than the budget presented in December by former Gov. Bill Walker.
Education:$280 million reduction to the base student allocation. The BSA would be reduced by $1,100 per student, going from $5,900 to $4,880. Only 50 percent of state dollars goes into classrooms now, and the other 50 percent is used for school administration.
