Senate passes Fiscal Year 2014 budget

(Continued)

NORMAN —

· $30 million to the Maintenance of State Buildings Revolving Fund and $60 million for repairs and renovation of the State Capitol

Senate Appropriations Chairman Clark Jolley noted the importance of targeted funding increases for core government services. 

“This budget represents a conservative approach to limit the growth of government while still investing in teaching in the classroom, in child welfare, and our infrastructure management,” said Jolley, R-Edmond. “We know we need to see increased dollars go to kids in the classroom, and we must press forward with monumental reforms to our child welfare services.  These are fundamental core services, and this budget fulfills our most important commitments while delivering on a tax cut for the people of Oklahoma.”

HB 2301 will now advance to the governor for her signature.
