House and Senate release supplemental budget proposals

This week, leaders of the Senate and House fiscal committees released their supplemental operating and capital budgets.

The budgets propose technical corrections and appropriation changes to the current 2013-15 biennial budgets.

In terms of process, the Senate budget was passed out of the Senate Ways & Means committee last night, debated and voted off the Senate floor today on a vote of 41 to 8.

The House has scheduled floor action for Saturday.

Once both chambers pass their respective budgets, negotiations begin towards a compromise budget.
