Missouri governor reverses $12M of budget cuts

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri schools will get additional money because Gov. Jay Nixon has decided to reverse a few of the budget cuts he made earlier this year.

Nixon on Wednesday released about $12 million of previously blocked spending, including $9 million for public schools. The Democratic governor cited a report released a day earlier showing Missouri revenues grew by 5.8 percent in September compared with the same time last year.

The school funding was part of $59 million of budget cuts Nixon announced last month, after lawmakers overrode his vetoes to enact new tax breaks. Nixon also released money for the University of Missouri-Kansas City, community health clinics and a Sullivan County lake project that been on hold since July.

More than $162 million of budgeted spending remains on hold.
