The committee met late after 12:00 and the Senate presented their offer which did not accept any of Workforce issues I reported as the House position last night.
The Committee took a brief recess and the House came back and responded as follows:
House accepts the Senate position with NO performance incentive funding
House accepts the Senate position of and increase of $3,717,917 for equity.
The District Workforce fund is now at $366,340,160 for 2017-2018 ( an increase over last year). We have not seen a run on these numbers yet. It will be available when the budget hits the table for the 72 hr. cooling off period before the final vote.
Items kicked up to the chairs are:
