According to recent government figures, the state is roughly $950 million in the hole for the balance of this fiscal year and $2 billion in deficit for the fiscal year starting July 1, 2016.  Historically, because the way the legislature has devised the budgetary system, higher education and healthcare needs are the victims when cuts occur.
