Due to the potential Federal “clawback” of federal CARES/COVID money, a slimmed-down version of the budget is being passed as “Act One.” Once the Governor’s Office completed the negotiations with the federal government, the expectation is that “Act Two” would be a special session taking place in the Spring for a large supplemental appropriation to be used to amend the budget bill.

The Senate version of the budget does differ from the House-amended version of Senate Bill 200. Compromises will have to be made to pass the bill before this Saturday’s session adjournment.

The House is in recess until 5 p.m.

The House Returned at 6:30 p.m. to finish the agenda. The House also received committee reports and messages from the Senate and Governor.
