$8.3 billion budget agreement reached
May 19, 2021
Finally, I can talk about the state budget!
An agreement was reached last week between House and Senate leaders and the governor to appropriate $8.3 billion for Fiscal Year 2022, which starts in July. Now we just have to get the various budget bills passed through the Joint Committee on Appropriations and Budget and through the House and Senate and signed into law by the governor. This agreement makes that highly likely.
I want to highlight that there were no cuts to the agencies under my House Appropriations and Budget Subcommittee on Natural Resources and Regulatory Services.
