The House passed the FY 10 Amended budget today.  The bill calls for furloughs of state personnel including teachers, caseworkers and food stamp eligibility workers and cuts to funding for independent living programs, recruitment and screen of prospective adoptive parents and domestic violence shelters.  The House also rejected the Governor’s plan to pay for certain scholarships with lottery reserves and, instead, funded those scholarships with general revenue funds.  The FY 10 Amended budget now moves to the Senate for consideration.
