Legislature Acts on School Facilities Budget Proposals
The Legislature is continuing its work on reviewing the Governor’s budget proposals, and over the last few days the Assembly and Senate have both acted on the following school facilities items originally proposed in January:
– Emergency Repair Program – The Governor proposed providing $188.1 million in one-time funds for the Emergency Repair Program (ERP). The education budget subcommittees in both the Senate and Assembly have approved the ERP funding at $188.5 million; the slight increase from the January proposal is based on technical adjustments in the fund source.
