Budget Update #3 – Legislature’s Budget Plan


The Assembly and Senate have reached a two-party budget agreement and took actions in their respective budget committees today to adopt the plan. We do not yet know the timing of the next steps of the process – when there will be a full Senate and Assembly vote on the budget plan and when legislative leadership negotiations with the Governor will begin in earnest (and whether there will be a three-party final budget deal prior to June 15t h) . We will continue to keep you posted as we learn more about the process and timing.

In the meantime, the following are the outcomes in the Legislature’s budget plan of the health
and human services issues that we have highlighted in previous budget updates.
