More budget decisions: Replacement items only on case-by-case basis

The joint budget committee is now debating a series of items that will play into every agency budget it sets for next year: Benefit changes, inflationary items, replacement items and more. So far, JFAC has agreed unanimously to include the governor’s recommendation for benefit cost changes for state employees in all agency budgets, but not to include either his recommendations for inflationary adjustments or his recommendations for replacement items – a big budget chunk. Instead, when JFAC members propose budget motions, they’ll have to decide on a case-by-case basis whether to include any of those inflationary adjustments or replacement items.
