Public hearings on the budget for Article II health and human service programs in SB 1, the General Appropriations Act for 2006-2007, began Monday February 7, in both the Senate Finance committee and the Health and Human Services Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee (HAC). On a faster track than in previous sessions, the budget committees plan to complete their subcommittee/workgroup activities (including taking public testimony) on HHS agencies before the end of February. This means major decisions about whether to add funds to the Legislative Budget Board's (LBB) proposed budget (SB 1) are being made in the next few weeks.
