House to consider budget amendments Monday

House leadership said Wednesday amendments to the budget bill will be considered Monday, but whether or not that would include a comprehensive budget amendment remained unclear. 

Both the House and the Senate have adjourned for the week. As the June budget deadline looms, the General Assembly is scheduled to be session from Monday June 23 until the budget is passed.

“We are moving to move the bill to the floor on Monday for second [consideration] and then back into the committee. I have full intention of amending that vehicle for a floor vote,” said Rep. Bill Adolph (R-Delaware), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.
