Once again, every major state budgetary program area this fiscal year had spending increases, save one: public assistance.

That’s according to a new survey out from the National Association of State Budget Officers that rounds up state budget plans and forecasts for the 2015 fiscal year. As we reported this morning, the spending increases were driven largely by K-12 education, which accounted $11.1 billion of the new spending, and Medicaid, which accounted for $8.5 billion.

For the second straight fiscal year, public assistance was the only program with a net decline in spending, though that $590 million drop was largely related to California’s decision to move funding for public assistance outside its general fund, NASBO reports. The state saw a $337 million decline in spending on public assistance mostly due to the shifting of grant costs for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program—commonly referred to as welfare—from the state to counties, according to NASBO.

In all, 12 states cut public assistance, which accounted for an estimated 3.1 percent of all state spending during the last fiscal year.
