ABSTRACT
The article gives information about Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, who is recommending a 2.4% increase in the 2006 state budget. He said he would continue to implement government reform and streamlining measures while funding a $4.53 billion spending plan without raising taxes. Barbour released his executive budget proposal on Tuesday and said there are funding challenges ahead, such as deficits in some state agency budgets. By following his recommendations, the state can still provide a 10.25% increase in the state Medicaid budget and an 8% pay raise for teachers, he said. The governor did not recommend any new bond-financed projects.
