2016 Senate Bill 823

Appropriations: 2016-2017 “omnibus” budget

Introduced in the Senate

March 1, 2016

Introduced by Sen. Dave Hildenbrand (R-29)

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.

Referred to the Committee on Appropriations
