Put off again

A vote on HB 61, the House-passed bill to make permanent this year's 4 percent holdbacks, other budget cuts, and transfers from the public education stabilization fund, has been put off again in the Senate, this time until March 3rd. Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, said the federal stimulus may make the transfers from the stabilization fund unnecessary by covering those costs for schools. "We're awaiting that information," he told the Senate, and anticipate "pulling that bill back, most likely, but I don't want to do that prematurely." The Senate agreed to hold off until March 3.
