House budget subcommittee documents

— The state House began rolling out its budget Friday. As with everything else around Jones Street, the process is a bit different in the House than it is in the Senate. 

Senators rolled out their budget all at once earlier this year. House budget-writers have sent pieces of their spending plan to budget subcommittees that began meeting Friday morning. Those budget subcommittees have the ability to adjust details of the spending plan before it is recombined into a single document over the weekend. 

There will almost certainly be some details that will surface in the full budget document over the weekend that aren't apparent in the measures reviewed by subcommittees Friday. But if you're looking for a good overview of what's on the table, the documents distributed Friday morning are available online:

    I want to be a better teacher, so I applied for and was just accepted to a master's degree program. It'd be nice for my salary to represent my increased education when I'm done but, no, they're cutting that. I wonder if I should even bother.

    Thanks for nothing in the education budget. Teachers and state employees NEED and DESERVE a raise.
