The budget includes an additional $750 million for road projects. That extra money came from fuel and hotel taxes that the General Assembly increased last year.
The final agreement also adds $70 million in one-time funding to expand medical school programs at Morehouse College and Mercer University. The state received the extra money as part of a settlement agreement with the federal government over fouled-up Medicaid payments. Deal announced the allocation last week.
The state House is expected to vote by the end of the week on a budget for fiscal 2017, which begins July 1.
Legislators must approve the budgets before ending the 2016 session in late March.
