The House version of the K-12 school aid, community college and university budgets for the fiscal year that begins Oct 1, 2016. A separate House budget authorizes the rest of state government spending (House Bill 5294). This bill would appropriate a total of $16,176 billion, of which $1.918 billion is federal money. Of this total, $14,187 billion would go to K-12 public education, compared to $13.896 billion the prior year. It also appropriates $1.586 billion for state universities, compared to $1.534 billion the prior year. Community colleges would get $402 million, vs. $388 million the prior year.
Altogether, when both "omnibus" budgets are combined, the House proposes to spend $54.943 billion on all of state government next year, vs. $54.443 billion originally approved for the current year.
