Rep. Rapp Comments on the Latest House Effort to Finalize the State Budget

Mar. 16, 2016  Download

Lawmakers took action Wednesday in the state capitol to provide essential funding for the remainder of the 2015/2016 state budget. The current year’s fiscal plan remains unresolved due to the Governor’s line-item vetoes of more than $6 billion for basic and higher education, as well as money for the Department of Corrections and agriculture programs. The House and Senate put forth the supplemental budget legislation to address funding holes created by the Governor’s vetoes and restore state funding for these programs. The funding bill approved today provides for a 200 million dollar increase for basic education, a 5 percent increase for higher education, and ensures that no schools will close in the Commonwealth. Rep. Kathy Rapp (R-Warren Forest & Crawford) said it is past time to complete the budget and she hopes the governor will not continue to hold these programs hostage.
