MASSACHUSETTS -- Governor Deval Patrick is expected to outline his 2015 fiscal year budget plan on Wednesday.
Patrick is required by the Massachusetts Constitution to unveil a budget proposal by Wednesday. According to officials in Patrick's administration, members of the State House and Senate have agreed on a revenue estimate of $24.3 billion for the fiscal year beginng July 1.
That's a nearly five percent increase of the current budget. Patrick said the budget plan will likely include $12 million in summer job training opportunities. It also equates to about $3 million more than the current budget.
On Tuesday night, the Governor was scheduled to deliver the State of the Commonwealth address, but it was postponed because of a winter storm.
