Reference: Deal orders agencies to cut 2%

2% cut Memo-Budget Instructions AFY 2012 and FY 2013 (2).pdf

Very important to know that the Governor has instructed agencies to cut an additional 2% from their budgets. However there is good news!!!!!!!! There are several exempted areas and Medicaid is one of them. One can only think that your hospital visits and conferences has helped make this a positive situation for Medicaid , ie , no cuts. See attached instructions.

The instructions apply to both the 2012 fiscal year, which began July 1, and the following year, the 2013 fiscal year.
Funding for K-12 schools, Medicaid and prisons are exempt from the requirement to cut 2 percent, according to the instructions.


See links below and attached budget instructions:
