Nixon prepares to release final budget proposal

On Wednesday, Gov. Jay Nixon will unveil his proposed budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 at his last State of the State address.

Nixon, who plans to focus his last year in office balancing the budget and paying down state debt through downsizing, said he hopes this election year will create more attention for his proposed budget.

“The more attention there is on what I think are the smart investments for the state, based on not only my last seven years as Governor but thirty years of public experience, I feel very strongly about things we are doing here. I think they are the right things for our state,” said Nixon.

Nixon’s proposal also includes $131 million in additional state and federal funding for developmental disabilities.

Nixon’s address is scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m.
