HELENA – As Gov. Steve Bullock and legislative Republicans get down to crafting the state budget, they’ll do battle over a two-year, $11.5 billion spending proposal from the governor, crammed full of some big increases for health care, schools, state colleges, public employee compensation and infrastructure.

 

Bullock, a Democrat, acknowledges that he’s asking for some substantial spending increases, including approval of $750 million in federal funds for expanding Medicaid, the health insurance program for the poor.

 

Yet he says with the state’s finances in good shape, there’s no reason Montana shouldn’t use its available money to bolster vital programs and obligations that need patching up – as well as offer a tax rebate fo homeowners.
