Gov. Kemp asks Georgia agencies to plan for big budget cuts

Georgia’s economy is still growing, but state agencies will have to look for ways to cut their budgets, under a directive the Kemp administration sent out Tuesday.

It is the first time budget cut proposals have been requested from agencies since the state was hammered by the after-effects of the Great Recession nearly a decade ago.

“The governor is asking agencies to find efficiencies in their organizations and submit budget reduction proposals for amended FY2020 (which ends June 30) of four percent and FY2021 of six percent,” the governor’s budget office instructions said.

State agencies were told to expect to get four percent less to spend in their monthly allocations as of Oct. 1.
