JFC sets vote on K-12 funding for Thursday, May 23

The Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) will meet in Executive Session to vote on K-12 education funding in the 2019-21 state budget on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at 11:00 a.m.  The meeting will be held in Room 412 East, State Capitol.  View meeting notice.

The committee will work from budget papers (see below) prepared by the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB).  Those budget papers deal with specific subjects–e.g., revenue limit adjustments,  per pupil categorical aid, special education categorical aid, etc.  The budget papers provide background information and typically lay out a series of alternatives for the committee to consider on each topic.

The JFC may also work from motions prepared by the LFB at the request of individual members of the committee.  Those motions are generally not made available to the public until the time of the vote.
