In light of the House action this week on the budget, I believe (have you heard this before?) that there is finally light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Based on next week’s legislative schedule, here is what I think will happen…
The Senate will: move the tax and fiscal code bills (fiscal code may be the last code bill passed); pass the gaming bill, the school code bill and the debt reduction bill (RCAP).
Then (probably on Wednesday) the House will pass the non-preferred appropriations bills, which will include level funding for the state-related Universities.
