Atlanta, GA (AP) - The Georgia House and Senate have approved an $18
billion amended budget for the remainder of the fiscal year.

The midyear plan now goes to Gov. Nathan Deal for his approval. The House approved the budget in a 140-22 vote. The Senate unanimously approved the budget 53-0.

The plan includes more than $12 million to help fund the Morehouse School of Medicine, which trains primary care physicians at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. The school asked the state for help after other funding fell through at the last minute.
