2018 Legislative Session Update

We finished our work on time and passed a balanced budget that fully fund public schools with $1B in new funding for K-12.  We have $2.4B in rainy day funds in reserve.  While we went into triple overtime after the Senate Republicans refused to pass a state construction budget and insisted on raising property taxes, this year, with Democrats taking back the Senate, we broke the political gridlock and passed the Capital Budget that puts a record $1B toward building schools and $800M for colleges and universities.
