SECTION I

Highlights This Week

 

Legislative Leaders Announce Funding Proposals: On Wednesday, House and Senate Democratic leaders announced funding proposals aimed at finalizing the state's budget. The proposals, totaling $446 million, included the allocation of "new" recurring funds as well as a recommendation to utilize monies from the state's "rainy day fund." The parts of the proposals that affect higher education are described below.

Recurring Funds: The GCCA (General Conference Committee on Appropriations) Subcommittee on Education has been allocated $122.6 million in recurring funds for distribution to all education agencies. These agencies include higher education, vocational-technical education and common education, as well as nine smaller agencies such as the Oklahoma School for Science and Mathematics, the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST), and the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA). The subcommittee has the responsibility of deciding how much of the additional money will go to each agency.

Rainy Day Funds: In addition, legislative leaders have proposed utilizing $149 million from the state's "rainy day fund," with higher education receiving $37.5 million of that amount. However, this proposal is not subject to the discretion of the GCCA Subcommittee on Education and will require agreement by the Governor and/or Republican legislators.
