Provincial budget set to be released this afternoon

It’s budget day in Saskatchewan with the Sask. Party set to release its budget for 2022-23.

With higher oil and potash prices the province will most likely have room to increase spending.

Premier Scott Moe has already hinted that they will be investing more in healthcare with a focus specifically on addressing the backlog of surgeries and the recruitment and retention of healthcare workers in the province.

620 CKRM will have live local coverage of this year’s budget starting just after the 2:00 news.
