In an update to the Governor’s ealier unallotment plan, Minnesota Management and Budget recently released specific numbers on unallotments for state agencies. In total, the cuts to agencies amount to $19.5 million in the FY 2010-11 biennium. Most state agencies will see their operating budget reduced by 2.25% for the biennium. Those agencies that are exempted from the cut include Public Safety, Corrections, Military and Veterans Affairs, State Operated Services, and the Minnesota Sex Offender Program within the Department of Human Services.
To find the specific dollar amount cut for a particular agency, read this recent letter to the Legislative Advisory Commission from Commissioner Hanson.
