WA Budget – Proposed Agency Cuts Explanations

I used this document in a caucus discussion of the proposed agency cuts and thought it might be interesting to people. It’s a long PDF with a duplicate copy of the spreadsheet referenced in my last budget post. To understand the spreadsheet you need to read the earlier post first.

There are 6 pages here and it’s a little wonky, but you begin to get a sense of what some of the rather bland descriptions of the impact of proposed cuts actually mean.Click the document icon to the left for the actual PDF file.

This is the document I referenced in the League of Education Voters conference call this morning.
