The budget that Governor Kitzhaber unveiled Tuesday calls for an 8% overall spending increase, but no new taxes. But many State programs and agencies slated for cuts show up in the fine print. For human services, the Governor is suggesting 40% less money than what agencies say they need. Janet Byrd, with Neighborhood Partnerships says with all the recent belt tightening, these cuts could be too much too soon. "Those are the kinds of things that, if we don't increase them to meet the surge in demand, I worry that so many people are just going to fall further behind before we have a chance for these structural changes to help people." Byrd adds that Kitzhaber also proposes spending more money on early childhood education, but less on education overall.
