What the Legislators are saying:
Nathan BellThe House just approved raises for employees already earning more than $130000 per year. I voted against these raises. If we can't afford raises for all state employees we shouldn't grant raises to our most highly paid employees.
Representative Ed Garner several increases in Budget appropriations were voted down on the House floor today. There is definitely a change in the Capitol. Appropriations now matter. Appropriations are line item authority to spend money. Funding determines whether or not spending increases. Funding of the Budget is accomplished by the Revenue Stabilization Act at the end of the session. What is being voted down... is even the possibility that spending could increase...by limiting the appropriation. This...is new.
