Dispatch from Jones St: HHS Budget Update
The House and Senate conferrees met today in an open meeting to inform the public of where they are in budget negotiations. Many of the items in dispute are starting to be sort out but as of now there is nothing concrete to report. What we can report as not in flux is that the Senate passed a Continuing Resolution today that would keep state government running past June 30th at 85% of its current budget level.
SB 311, the Continuing Resolution bill is not on the House calendar for tomorrow. We will keep you updated as information becomes available.
