House Returns to Work on Budget
The vote will likely take place at some point Tuesday, though whether the plan will pass is unclear according to State House Sound Bites.
The Patriot News reports that the Senate’s plan to balance the budget using tax increases and expansions, gambling expansion, fund transfers, and borrowing will not be considered either completely or in part until after all non-tax and borrow options are explored.
State Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams), who helped author the House’s plan, told State House Sound Bites that “we have a few people that are uneasy with some of the things that we’re doing, but that’s to be expected. I think we will have the votes.”
Moul added if the vote fails, they would be willing to discuss folding some of the proposals in his plan into a compromise plan.
