HOUSE READIES $123M SPENDING BILL TO CLOSE BOOKS ON FY17

House Democratic leaders have prepared a $123.2 million spending bill that would close the books on the tumultuous budget year that ended July 1, enabling the state to pay some of its outstanding bills, including $49.8 million for snow and ice removal and more than $20 million for state sheriffs.

The Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez, released the bill Tuesday evening for committee members to vote on it before it is expected to reach the floor during the House's formal session on Wednesday. The poll closes at 10 a.m.
