2014-2015 Budget News
The House and Senate budgets were released last week. Both budgets have moved through each chamberâ€™s appropriations committees. The House and Senate budgets were discussed by the both chambers yesterday and passed today. Now that both budgets have passed, the House and Senate will go into conference to work out the difference in their budgets.
The Senate budget totals $74.9 billion budget - about $400 million shy of the House plan. The Senate spends similar amounts on education as the House.
Board of Governor's Performance Funding Proposal
The House and Senate performance funding measures are included in proviso in each General Appropriations Act (GAA). It appears that no separate legislation will pass either chamber that will codify performance funding. This causes the proposals below to be for the next fiscal year only and will have to be funded and reintroduced again next year.
