Kemp goes big on spending, seeking $3B increase for Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Brian Kemp is proposing almost $3 billion more in spending in the 2023 budget year that begins July 1. That's driven by more than $1 billion in pay and retirement increases for Georgia’s state, K-12 and university employees. Kemp wants to spend $30.2 billion in state revenue in the 2023 budget, up from $27.3 billion originally passed this year. Kemp seeks to fulfill promises he made in 2018 when he ran for governor and court other voters with cash. That includes $2,000 for teachers and $5,000 for university and state agency employees. Kemp want to give those amounts as one-time payments this year and permanent pay raises next year.
