State lawmakers approved the final version of Gov. Bill Haslam’s $32.7 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year Wednesday, bringing the group closer to adjourning its session for the year.
According to a report from Capitol Hill-based website TNReport, lawmakers could adjourn as early as tomorrow.
The state budget, which includes more than 100 pages of changes from Haslam’s original draft, includes $350 million designated for TennCare, as the state expects new beneficiaries to be added to its rolls under the Affordable Care Act.
It also includes $50 million for higher education.
The plan was approved unanimously in the Senate and overwhelmingly in the House with an 82-14 vote.
