Gov. Maura Healey released her proposed budget for the next fiscal year this week, and for some people — like advocates of more money for the MBTA and education — there's a lot to like. But while the budget would top this year's by $2 billion, there are also some notable cuts, including suggested reductions to substance-abuse efforts and the personal care assistant program in MassHealth, which provides health care to some of the state's neediest residents.
Adam Reilly is joined by the Boston Globe's Matt Stout and State House News Service's Alison Kuznitz to discuss who would benefit if Healey's vision becomes reality, who would suffer and some creative accounting techniques the Healey administration hopes to use to make the numbers add up.
