Gov. Healey releases FY2024 budget proposal
Today Gov. Maura Healey filed her $55.5 billion state budget plan for fiscal 2024, which includes funding for local accounts that she announced last week.
Healey’s proposal, known as House 1, would increase the main discretionary local aid account by 2% over fiscal 2023, while increasing Chapter 70 school aid by $586 million, which would fund commitments made in the 2019 Student Opportunity Act. The governor also proposed increases for regional school transportation, vocational school transportation, special education reimbursements, payments-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT), transportation of students in temporary housing, library aid, and rural school aid.
