76 days without a State budget, legislative leaders plan stopgap appropriations

The Senate and House Republicans told their respective Caucuses Friday they are preparing a limited stopgap budget proposal to provide school districts, human service agencies and nonprofits with some level of funding in General Fund, Education Code and Fiscal Code bills.

The gameplan is to have the Senate pass the stopgap package when it comes back to session September 16, 17 and 18 and then have the House finish action on the bills when they both return the week of September 21.

The details of what will be in the stopgap has yet to be worked out.
