Statement on Governor Bryant’s Executive Budget Recommendation

“The Governor has recommended a 5.53% decrease in funding for State Agencies and proposes a 6.50% cut from his own. The Secretary of State’s Office has already reduced its budget by $1.4-Million per year since I took office and will make further cuts, as proposed by Governor Bryant,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.

“To do so, however, it is imperative we follow the Governor’s recommendation that state agencies have the flexibility to manage their funds to make these necessary cuts.”
