Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: December 9, 2016 01:30 PM
From: Senator Lisa Baker
To: All Senate members
Subject: Budget Impasse Legislation
I plan to re-introduce Senate Bills 326 and 327 from last session which would address any future budget impasse.

Document #1

Introduced as SB225

Description: The first bill would amend the Constitution to require the Commonwealth to maintain state appropriations at 80 percent of the prior year level if a general fund budget is not enacted by the constitutional deadline of June 30 of any year.

Document #2

Introduced as SB226

Description: The second bill would provide for certain actions/deadlines by the General Assembly to move the process forward.

Previous co-sponsors were Senators Eichelberger, Vulakovich, Hutchinson, Ward, White and Brooks.

Thank you for your consideration.
