Patrick-Murray Administration Releases Fiscal Year 2012 Budget
BOSTON - Wednesday, January 26, 2011 - The Patrick-Murray Administration today filed its FY2012 budget, a balanced and fiscally responsible plan that maintains an unprecedented commitment to education and other key priorities, while continuing efforts to speed the Commonwealth's economic recovery and lay a foundation for long-term growth and prosperity.
This budget reflects the Administration's belief that, though we face unprecedented fiscal challenges, we need to be smarter about the way state government does business and delivers services. The budget supports Governor Deval Patrick's four key priorities for his second term: growing jobs throughout the Commonwealth, closing the achievement gap in our schools, ensuring that health care is as affordable as it is accessible and addressing youth and urban violence.
