Delaware faces structural budget challenges, with expenses in areas like education and healthcare outpacing the growth of key revenue sources. Governor Carney will work closely with Democrats and Republicans in the General Assembly on a budget reset that looks at state spending and Delaware’s revenue system.


Governor Carney will:

  • Work with Democrats and Republicans on a long-term budget solution
  • Initiate a budget reset that looks at state spending and Delaware’s revenue system
  • Improve efficiency within state government to eliminate wasteful spending
  • Protect key public services

Governor Carney will also engage the public, gathering ideas to help confront Delaware’s budget challenges.
