Legislative Budget Proposals

Contact: Ken Pokalsky

The Senate Republicans and Assembly Democrats each introduced an alternative budget plan this week. The Senate's came out in the form of a legislative resolution (Resolution number 4655, available online here), while the Assembly introduced amended versions of the Governor's budget bills (available on the Assembly web site here; note the bill numbers are A.9800-B thru A.9810-B, inclusive). Both the Senate resolution and the Assembly budget bills were approved by their respective houses this week. Two-way budget negotiations, and joint legislative conference committees, will commence next week.
