The state budget wasn’t yet finalized when tonight’s 8:00 p.m. deadline for filing appropriations conference reports rolled around, so conferees for the pre-k-12 budget bill filed a “dummy” report, with $0 appropriated, to meet the deadline and keep the bill alive while they hammer out final details.
A few of the bills we’ve been tracking have made it all the way through the process, and other conference reports will be filed and adopted over the next couple of days. We’ll let you know if we need urgent action, and will share all the details once we have a final school funding bill. In the meantime, you can find bill updates here.
Thanks for hanging with us all the way through this legislative session! We’ll be in touch soon.
