Breaking: Senate to hear budget "trailer" bill

Will the State's revenue collections continuing to plummet, the lege needs to run a "trailer" bill to fix the budget fix to keep the current year's budget in balance.

On Thursday, SB1184 will be amended via a striker to serve as that trailer (text of the striker not available on the lege's website as of this writing).

At 9:30 a.m., Senate Appropriations will hear (and probably amend) the bill, while Senate Rules will hear (and probably pass) the amended bill immediately upon adjournment of Approps. coverage of the continued budget shortfall here.
