Legislative Update: April 30, 2018

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 30, 2018
EDAM was able to get a letter voicing opposition to proposed cuts to economic development funding included in the committee materials for the April 27 Ways and Means hearing on the Omnibus Jobs Bill, but the language dealing with the DEED budget was not amended and remains problematic. The Senate Omnibus Jobs Bill was rolled into the overall Senate Omnibus Supplemental Budget bill,  which passed off the Senate Floor on April  26th. The House will take up their Omnibus Supplemental Bill (which now includes the Omnibus Jobs Bill) on the House Floor this week, at which point Conferees will be named. We will shift our focus from trying to amend the House language to advocating for the Senate position in Conference.

We expect the focus to shift now onto the Omnibus Tax Bills in both House and Senate as well as the potential unveiling of the Bonding Bills in each body.
