HB 1030; ACR - 2016 State Budget Bill

While certainly far from perfect, the 2016 budget bill had several features conservatives could support, including : tax cuts, expansion of the opportunity scholarship program and aggressive setting aside of funds in the rainy day fund. Of course there are items we would have liked to see addressed, such as moving to a merit pay system for educators and eliminating corporate welfare programs like the film production grant fund; but Civitas Action believes on net that the state budget is a net positive.

The conservative vote is yes. RCS #1430 (91-22)
