With Test Run Budget Passed, Real Negotiations Have Begun

Last week was the Constitutional deadline for the Legislature to pass a budget. However this budget will not be signed by the Governor in order to close a $45 billion deficit.

With House of Origin Deadline Passed, Legislature Tackles State Budget Crisis

The House of Origin deadline was last Friday, and roughly 35% of the 2,159 bills introduced this year died — a dramatic increase from historical norms. Many of the bills that were killed would have had a significant effect on the state budget deficit, which is estimated to be $44.9 billion this year, despite early budget actions that were taken to reduce the deficit by approximately $7 billion.
