Senate Approves Budget 19-14

By John Forester(Don't Use) | June 17, 2011

The Senate voted 19-14 (party lines) Thursday night to approve the budget without any changes to the Assembly version of the document, clearing the way for it to now head to the guv’s desk for his review.

Lawmakers debated almost nine hours on the legislation, turning back eight Dem amendments, including one to repeal the collective bargaining changes the Legislature approved in March, but had been held up by a court order until a Supreme Court ruling this week.

The SAA will forward to members additional information on the budget approved by the Legislature as it becomes available next week.
