HB 950; 3R - Modify 2011 Appropriations Act

This bill modifies last year’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The Senate version was more conservative as it was less reliant on one-time funds, put money away in a “rainy day” fund, and implemented a merit-pay system for teachers. Civitas believes the conservative position is to avoid unnecessary spending while ensuring the tax burden on individuals and businesses is minimized as much as possible.
