CCD Meeting Notes 6.4.19
CCD June Meeting
12.9 billion dollar budget.
Education house passed a capitol gains tax to get 2 million of spending. The Senate is using other tax corrections to get here.
This Bill contains: 164 Million of additional funding for public schools. The senate has 94 million for this purpose. There is municipal aid for this as well. This is based on a poverty index and the numbers are lining up.
3.1 % each year for Medicaid increases.
Secure psych unit was not funded in house, 25 new beds, 40 million, and new kids beds as well. This should address the backlog. This will send patients to the appropriate place. No child will be more than an hour away from a mental health unit.
