State Budget Update

The conferees working on the state budget have agreed on the amount they will spend: $21.74 billion.

\"stateThis is $265 million more than the budget passed by the Senate, and $420 million less than the budget passed by the House.

The House budget funded Driver Education and maintained funding for teaching assistants.

If the agreement is that there will be $420 million less than that House budget proposed, then there will be cuts.


Will it be in Driver Education?  Teaching Assistants?  State employee raises?  Pre-K classrooms?
