Note: The FY 2012 Current total includes funding in the GAA plus any supplemental budgets passed during the year. The FY 2013 budget includes adjustments to allow for year-to-year comparisons. All numbers use the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) to adjust for inflation, except for K-12: Chapter 70 Aid which uses the State and Local Government Implicit Price Deflator.

* In order to make an accurate comparison across fiscal years, this total includes an adjustment to account for the increased use of the Group Insurance Commission by municipalities for their employees' health benefits.
