Education and non-profits are taking a hit in Delaware’s budget process.
The Joint Finance Committee has voted to slash $27 million for the state’s public schools.
In addition, the committee has approved eliminating state grants-in-aid for non-profits.
Those were just some of the largest cuts approved by the budget writing panel.
But the Wilmington News Journal reports that Democrats are hoping to still persuade Republicans to go along with some tax hikes to close a $350 million budget shortfall.
