General Assembly Adopts State Budget

leave a comment »

After rejecting the conference committee report on the state budget Wednesday, the House reconsidered their vote and adopted the conference report 64-54 Thursday afternoon.

The conference report was then sent to the Senate, where they also failed to adopt the report on the first vote. After reconsidering their vote, however, the Senate adopted the report 22-16. The budget was sent to the Governor, who has until June 9th to return the bill with any vetoes.

Those vetoes will be addressed by the General Assembly when they return June 15th.
