It appears that the House and the Senate have reached an agreement that will put a budget on the Governor’s desk by week’s end. The budget must recognize the significant deficit that is the result of lower than expected revenues, but the cuts will come from proposed “new” funding. As we did not have any proposed “new” funding – there is nothing to cut. We will have details by tomorrow, but at this point it looks like the provider community will not suffer.
