April 2, 2012

LINCOLN--This week, state senators filibustered a bill relating to voting and sent the governor the budget. Here are some of the highlights of the lawmakers’ actions:

Budget: The legislature sent the budget to the governor March 27. The budget, made up of four different bills, would provide $17 million for child welfare shortfalls, about $80 million for higher education construction projects and $10 million for special education funding for schools, among other provisions. The governor has five calendar days, not including Sunday, to sign, line-item veto or veto the budget.
