House unveils amended Ga. budget plan

ATLANTA (AP) - House lawmakers have unveiled an amended budget plan that would restore some proposed budget cuts.

Lawmakers did not publicly release all the financial documents accompanying their budget proposal.

The chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Terry England, said during a hearing Monday that the plan would restore what effectively amounted to school funding cuts for rural districts and would put some funds back into a school nutrition program.

England says decreased Medicaid spending will allow Georgia's state government to avoid proposed reimbursement cuts to providers.

The House must still vote on whether to approve the plan. If approved, it would next head to the state Senate.
