State House Passes Budget

Posted by Warren Krech on March 29, 2013

The Missouri House passes a nearly $25 billion budget that would fund modest increases for public education but not the Medicaid expansion Governor Jay Nixon wants.

Thursday’s House approval of the budget sends it to the Senate, where more changes are likely. The 2014 spending plan would provide a roughly 2% increase in basic aid for public schools, colleges and universities. But school funding would still fall $620 million short of what’s called for under the state’s foundation formula.

Missouri’s Tourism Division would get one of the largest percentage increases in the budget… from nearly $14 million this year to almost $20 million next year. The budget leaves out more than $900 million of federal funds that Nixon had recommended for a Medicaid expansion.
