Budget talks get serious starting now

The joint House and Senate Appropriations Committee begins hashing out the state budget situation in Atlanta today.
We'll be doing our best to stay close through Rep. Bobby Parham and Sen. Johnny Grant so we can learn the fate of the community's many state institutions, the most important of which being the state's oldest mental health institution.
Grant and Parham both said they expect to hear from Department of Human Resources Commissioner B. J. Walker on Thursday.
For those of you who can't wait that long, here is a grim report on the state's funding for all forms of well-being through public health courtesy of the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute.
