SB 5077 is the governor's proposed 2015-2017 operating budget.
Substitute SB 5077 was released and heard on March 31st, passed by Ways and Means on April 1st, and debated on the Senate floor on April 2nd. The Senate finished going through and voting on the amendments around 2:30am or so on the 3rd, did not get enough votes for the necessary procedural bump to actually vote on the bill immediately. And, instead of coming in on Saturday, the next day they could take up the budget, they voted it off the floor on Monday, April 6th. Now that both the House and Senate have passed a budget the two can begin the process of working through their differences and coming up with a budget both bodies can support.
