Governor's Budget

Governor Deval Patrick submitted his budget recommendations on Wednesday, and we want to commend him for the ease of access provided on the web. Finding a given line item or outside section of the budget had always been a nightmare. Now, the site is intuitive, easy to use, and thorough in its coverage. For each broad category or line item, you can easily see the FY2009 recommendation, and then with one click view Historical Budgets from FY2005 to date, or Historical Spending, or Employment Levels. Outstanding!
