Budget Monitor: The House Fiscal Year 2012 Budget

May 6, 2011    

The final budget approved by the House of Representatives for Fiscal Year 2012 includes modestly more funding than recommended by the House Ways & Means Committee in several areas, but largely follows the HWM proposal in implanting deep cuts across state government. 

The most significant amendments adopted were in health care accounts, specifically funding for a half year of the Commonwealth Care Bridge program, which provides health insurance for close to 19,000 legal immigrants, and adult day health services for the elderly and disabled.

These and other amendments affecting areas throughout the state budget are described in the new report Budget Monitor: The House Fiscal Year 2012 BudgetThe report also compares the final House budget to the Governor's proposal and to the current budget (Fiscal Year 2011), and provides some comparisons to funding levels from before the recent recession.     

The report is available at or by clicking here.
