Budget Basics


Next 10 used the Governor's 2022-23 estimates of spending and revenues, after backing out the policy proposals the Governor advanced in the budget, to arrive at the status quo budget. The options represent a mix of current legislative proposals, proposals in the Governor's budgets, and longer-standing potential changes to spending or revenue.
