Breaking - Senate Appropriations to consider budget proposal Wednesday morning

A newly-posted agenda for Senate Approps has the committee meeting at 11 a.m. (or upon adjournment of Senate Public Safety) in SHR1 to consider a budget proposal, a capital outlay proposal, and eight budget reconciliation bills (BRBs).

I couldn't find the text of the bills online as yet (I'm on the go, and can't really sit down for a thorough search right now...and they may not even be up yet), but an AP article (via MSN Money) talks about municipal impact fee grabs, privatizing prisons, and, of course, massive cuts to education and human services.

More later after I get home...

I guess part of the plan is also to allow the leg to directly appropriate all university tuition money. That is very disturbing.
