Despite clear and repeated warnings, the General Assembly’s Fiscal Year 2014 supplemental budget failed to make up for shortfall in lottery and gaming revenues.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – After the General Assembly failed to heed the administration’s repeated warnings about the need to make up for shortfalls in lottery and gaming revenues, Gov. Jay Nixon today called on legislators to restore $22 million for K-12 and higher education in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget.
The Governor also questioned the Senate Appropriations Committee’s decision to zero out funding to help prevent child abuse and neglect during consideration of the budget earlier this week.
