House Ways & Means budget to be released Wednesday

The House Ways & Means Committee will unveil its FY 2013 budget proposal on Wednesday, April 11. 

The budget is expected to be released mid-day, and the House has creating a landing page for its budget. We expect this website will be updated with the House budget when it is released mid-day on Wednesday, April 11.

As a reminder, the Providers' Council presented testimony to the House and Senate Ways & Means committees in early March, seeking:

  1. A 2.13 percent cost-of-inflation adjustment for all contracts that have not yet been updated under Chapter 257
  2. A 3 percent Salary Reserve for the 31,500 human services workers making under $40,000 per year (the expected cost is $28 million).

The Providers' Council will provide its members with more information after the budget is released. Please email Bill Yelenak to let him know what line items your organization will be advocating for in the House budget.
