The Georgia General Assembly — at least the House — will apparently take a wait-and-see approach regarding a potential new $400 million Georgia budget gap.
That gap was created last week when the U.S. Congress failed to approve $24 billion in “enhanced Medicaid” funds set to expire at the end of the year.” Medicaid is the nation’s health insurance plan for the poor.
If Congress fails to resolve the "enhanced Medicaid" funding deadlock, Georgia could face another $400 million revenue shortfall in the current budget. Some of that would likely come out of education.
