Committee:                Passed out of Senate Committee, Recommitted back to A & R

Timeframe:                 Now

Message is for:           All Senate Leadership, Your Senator, and Members of the  Senate A & R Committee      

Message:                     “Pass SB 72, we passed a budget for a reason, save for the future”       

Optional:                    E-mail the legislators on the committee. Example e-mail address:Firstname.Lastname@lrc.ky.gov . If that doesn’t work they have a contact page on their informational page.

Information:               Sometimes the government receives extra funds than what they budgeted as revenue. What this bill will do is keep us following our current budget, and save those excess funds gained in the interim between budgets for the next budget. Right now a lot of the Cabinets go ahead and spend the excess when it is received. If we followed this we would start the process of living within our means and creating a culture of savings that will pay dividends in future budget years.

                                    Also we need to thank Senator Chris McDaniel for sticking to his guns, he’s seems to be under a lot of pressure to make this bill go away. It passed committee on Jan 12 and has been passed over every day since and instead of making it disappear he has made a friendly amendment.
