Introduced by Sen. Dave Hildenbrand (R) on March 1, 2016 To authorize an “omnibus” state government budget for the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1, 2016, except for education spending. This would appropriate $38.711 billion for all state departments, compared to $38.623 billion the previous year. Of this, $20.596 billion is federal money. Senate Bill 824 would appropriate money for public schools, colleges and universities. Spending in both bills comes to $54.891 billion next year (or slightly less when adjusted to reflect interdepartmental transfers), compared to $54.443 originally authorized for the current year, of which $20.597 billion is federal money.
