Legislative Update - Friday, April 29, 2011

SB 1 – Senate Appropriations Bill

As of this morning, SB 1 has not been scheduled to be heard by the Senate.  SB 1 includes formula funding to the Alamo Colleges of $66.8 million a year, which differs from the House Appropriations bill that allocates approximately  $60.1 million.  SB 1 allocates $97.6 million a year for community colleges, employee group insurance which is comparable to the House version that allocates $99.5 million per year.  Difficulty in getting SB 1 heard in the Senate may center on the fact that SB 1 calls for the use of $3 billion from the Rainy Day fund to be used for the next biennium.  

Key Legislative Bills
