Montana State Budget

State Budget Made Plain

The state budget was just signed into law. It is a $7 billion measure to be spent over 2 years. For those challenged by large numbers, that is $3.5 billion per year.

Since most of us have a hard time grasping the significance of large numbers, simple division comes in handy. $3.5 billion spread over each worker in Montana, approximately 400,000 of us, is $8,750 each. That’s just the state budget. Your taxes are needed for the federal budget, the county budget and the city budget.
