Budget Update #5- Budget Agreement Reached
Updates Issued In September 2022
As part of its final actions of the 2021-2022 legislative session, which ended yesterday, the Legislature passed a revised budget bill (AB 179) and several additional budget trailer bills that complete unfinished work from the 2022-23 budget negotiations earlier this summer. In the health and human services area, most of the outstanding issues were on the statutory language necessary for implementation of several proposals already adopted as part of the 2022-23 budget package enacted in June. Following is the outcome of those outstanding issues, which are contained in the omnibus human services trailer bill, AB 207.
