Georgia House panel passes amended budget with new road spending, cash for bonuses already paid

ATLANTA (AP) — Amendments to Georgia’s state budget moved are moving ahead, including $315 million to cover bonuses already paid to public employees and teachers and $1.5 billion for road building and maintenance. The House Appropriations Committee voted to advance the budget, which would boost spending through June 30 by a massive $5 billion. The full House is scheduled to vote on the bill Wednesday. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp supports the increase, which would push spending of state money to $37.5 billion. In some cases, House members want to add back projects that Kemp originally struck from this year’s budget. Kemp has since softened his stance on some of that spending.
