Budget Requests Part 1: DES
State agencies have submitted their funding requests for the next fiscal year which begins July 1. Over the next few weeks we will be providing you with a snapshot of requests submitted by many of these agencies. The first snapshot is of the Department of Economic Security’s request for $49 million additional general fund dollars – a 10% increase over current funding. See our fact sheet for specifics.
As a reminder – child protective services is no longer part of DES but is now in the new Department of Child Safety, which we will report on separately within the next few weeks.
