State Budget Approved

State Budget Approved
Thursday, June 30th, 2011

State lawmakers passed a budget that went into effect on July 1st.  K-12 education faces payment deferrals but no immediate cuts to funding.  However, if state revenues fall short over the course of the year, cuts to K-12 education could be triggered, including reductions to in-home services, school bus transportation, and the length of the school year.
