WA Lege: Fill in the blanks

OLYMPIA — Proposed budgets are almost always “fluid documents.” This year’s budget proposals are so fluid that House Democrats don’t even have a tax package yet and Senate Democrats are making changes so fast that they aren’t even numbered.

Last night in a Senate Ways and Means Committee budget hearing, Democrats offered an amendment to add $1 million to the Department of Social and Health Services budget “to contract for the provision of an individual provider referral registry, pursuant to SB xxxx.”

Senate bills come with numbers, not x’s, so one can look them up and figure out what that line refers to.

    On page 106, strike all of lines 6 and 7 and insert “((General Fund—State Appropriation (FY 2011) … … . $1,221,000)) and adjust the totals accordingly.
