Governor Jack Markell today unveiled a balanced budget proposal that promotes increased job and educational opportunities, supporting the theme of his State of the State address last week when he focused on ways to unleash the potential of all Delawareans. The budget also upholds the Governor's core commitments to schools and public safety, while maintaining fiscal responsibility by appropriating 98 percent of available revenues and sustaining a fully funded Rainy Day Fund.

"This budget invests in what we value," said Markell. "It targets the key areas that we know are essential to maximizing economic opportunity for Delawareans: education and job training to strengthen our workforce; innovation and infrastructure to support businesses; and programs that will help our most vulnerable citizens and neighborhoods so everyone can have a fair shot to make the most of their abilities."
