Thanks to the folks at the Health Coalition for Children and Youth, the attached document provides an overview of relevant priorities for health care and the safety net. Please review and let us know if there are any additions to include. The Senate released their budget document last night around midnight.
This budget will move very fast, the Senate is begining to debate the budget as I type. At the press conference yesterday the governor indicated that it was his goal that he have a budget to sign by COB today, but at this point that timeline seems very unlikely. It is clear that the budget will be finalized before Monday, and we will avoid a government shutdown.
