On Monday, June 22, 2015, House and Senate leaders extended Governor Baker’s two-week interim budget into a one-month spending bill intended to cover state spending beyond July 1. According to the State House News Service, the $2.7 billion interim budget bill will fund state agencies and programs for one month based on fiscal 2015 appropriation levels.
The six-member conference committee now has until July 14 to reach a compromise on the larger $38.1 billion spending plan for fiscal 2016. The one-month spending bill takes into account Governor Baker’s allowable 10 days for review and approval of the budget.
Stay tuned for more information while the details of the FY16 annual spending plan are finalized.
