Tip sheet: Show us the money

Number of working days until the end of the 2016 session: 37.

Thursday is “show us the money” day.

Gov. Nathan Deal has outlined his proposed budget in broad strokes. On Thursday the details will emerge, and the larger tally – perhaps a record-breaking $23 billion.

The hefty spending plan, which will be posted on the Office of Planning and Budget website sometime in the afternoon, will be the best-read document of the day for lobbyists, lawmakers and others eager to see what it contains. Deal's chief of staff and top budget director will hold a briefing to explain it at 1 p.m.

The House starts at 10 a.m.; the Senate convenes at 11 a.m. At noon, House Democrats will share their agenda for the session at a noon press conference.
