2012 Regular Legislative Session Sine Die cont.

We’re on the House Floor debating the Senate’s Operating Budget. We just proposed an amendment to not delay payments to public schools. The amendment failed 55-43 with only one Democrat voting with us. We’re debating a few more amendments and then on to debate on final passage.

The Democrats are banking on a delayed payment to public schools, which actually pushes the payment into a completely different biennium. I just finished my comments on the Supplemental Budget and immediately got a text from a friend back home telling me I did a good job with my comments.

There it is, the bipartisan vote here tonight was a no vote on the Supplemental Budget.
