AUGUSTA, Maine ( WABI) -
According to governor Janet Mills there will be enough money to cover the costs of her state budget proposal.

The governor delivered her first budget address at the state house on Monday night.

She pushed back against criticisms of her spending plan being "unsustainable."

The governor says her plan relies on analysis from non-partisan state workers who say there will be enough money and maybe even more.

Still, the bottom line on her budget is $8.04 billion, an increase of almost eleven percent from the last state budget.
Republicans are worried the bottom line will get bigger, but also they think the revenue projections are too optimistic. The governor stands by those figures... and feels her budget will move Maine forward.
