Fiscal 2015 operating and capital budget conference committee documents are now available on the General Assembly’s website. As reported on Conduit Street earlier today, the Senate and House adopted the joint budget conference committee report on the floor this morning, finalizing the General Assembly’s actions on the fiscal 2015 operating budget. The capital budget conference committee report has been presented to the House of Delegates and should receive its final approval on Monday.
A summary of actions affecting local governments in the fiscal 2015 operating budget can be found on Conduit Street.
In the fiscal 2015 capital budget, the conference committee rejected prior proposals to limit future spending on transfer tax funded programs like Program Open Space and Agricultural Land Preservation. More details can be found in a previous post on Conduit Street.
