State Treasurer Colleen Davis Statement on Governor John Carney’s Proposed Budget

Office of the State Treasurer | State Treasurer Colleen C. Davis | Date Posted: Thursday, January 28, 2021



“I want to congratulate Governor Carney and his budget team for proposing a comprehensive spending plan designed to not only strengthen the state’s economy but also help take care of Delawareans. The Governor’s commitment to increase funding to the state’s COVID-19 response, fund the clean water initiative, and direct more money to schools will have direct benefit to our citizens.

The Governor also showed his determination to rebuild the state’s economy with significant financial enhancements to the State Strategic Fund, a Site Readiness Fund, the Delaware Prosperity Partnership, and the largest capital improvement plan in state history. Whether it be through my office’s participation on DEFAC, the Cash Management Policy Board or the various programs and initiatives that we offer to help State Employees and Delawareans save for retirement, college or for a loved one with disabilities, we will continue to assist the State through these uncertain times.

I look forward to seeing members of the Joint Finance and Bond Bill Committees convening their hearings and crafting spending plans that help everyone in Delaware while maintaining fiscal responsibility.”
