Georgia's total budget is $42,374,896,219 for the year ending in June, 2015.
$18,738,793,140 of that is state money: the taxes on purchases and income me and you and companies make to the Georgia taxman.
$12,184,984,411 is federal money passed through Georgia's budget. A lot of that is matching funds they send when we pony up some cash as well.
$11,451,118,668 comes from 'other' sources. That includes fees for service, like tuition payments to colleges and universities
