April 26, 2021 6:33 PM | Anonymous

Sub for HB 2007 - the mega-budget bill for the 2021 session - was passed by the Legislature prior to First Adjournment and the Governor signed it with some line item vetoes on Monday, April 26.  Attached is a spreadsheet of the negotiated items from the conference committee on HB 2007.Senate Ways and Means returned Monday to review the new consensus revenue and expenditure estimates, and began to craft their Omnibus bill over a day and a half.  House Appropriations worked through its 49 page omnibus list in about 9 hours on Tuesday.  Here is the list of omnibus items being considered by the budget committees.  Two of the key items for the Coalition are the first year funding for the Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers program and startup funds for a 988 crisis system.  The 988 crisis line will be live July 2022 according to the federal legislation.  Will Kansas be ready?
