Plan focuses on rebuilding economy and reserves, investing in education and environment
WILMINGTON (DE): Governor Carney on Thursday presented his Fiscal Year 2022 Recommended Budget virtually, sending the General Assembly a plan that will make important investments in rebuilding Delaware’s economy, investing in public schools, and preserving our environment.
“When the COVID-19 crisis hit, we were able to balance our budget without cutting critical services because we kept our promise to build a long-term, sustainable financial plan. This budget proposal will continue to protect taxpayer dollars while making investments where they’re needed most,” said Governor Carney. “Our priorities remain the same. We will rebuild our economy and create good jobs, invest in our public schools for all Delaware children, and strengthen communities across our state. This proposal includes the largest infrastructure program in Delaware history, historic investments to support disadvantaged students, and additional investments to clean up our drinking water and preserve farmland. We’ll also continue to support our state workers, who have stepped up for their neighbors time and again throughout this crisis. I want to thank members of the General Assembly for their partnership and for their consideration of this budget.”
