Senate approves state budget; Assembly will take up today

by | Jun 29, 2023 | Legislative Update Blog, State Budget

The state budget bill (Senate Bill 70) was debated late into the evening and, after rejecting numerous amendments from Senate Democrats, passed on a vote of 20-13. All Democrats were joined by GOP Sens. Hutton and Nass in opposition.

As promised, no changes were made to the document which now heads to the state Assembly for floor action today at 1pm (watch LIVE). If the Assembly approves the bill without changes, as expected, it would be delivered to the governor as early as Friday.
