The House version of the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 General Government budget. This would appropriate $5.513 billion in gross spending. Of this, $806.5 million is federal money, and the rest is from state and local taxes and fees. Among its many provisions this would authorize funding to accommodate no longer imposing sales tax on motor fuels, increasing the motor fuels tax by an equivalent amount, and restoring the foregone sales tax revenue that would have gone to schools with new money from taxing purchases from out of state catalogs and web sites, which a 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling permitted.
