Yesterday the Senate Ways & Means (W&M) Committee approved the chair’s 2020 supplemental operating budget proposal. The committee adopted several amendments, which (if my calculations are correct) add about $8.9 $9.2 million to the proposed spending increases for 2019–21. This would bring proposed 2019–21 appropriations from funds subject to the outlook plus the workforce education investment account to $54.0212 billion (an increase of 20.9 percent over 2017–19 spending).

Some of the notable adopted amendments include:

The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to consider the House chair’s operating budget proposal in executive session this afternoon.
