The House and Senate are indicating they’ll see the governor in court over the legality of appropriating Education before there are actual revenues to fund it.

In Senate Finance today, Senate members asked a liaison from the Department of Law and a budget analyst from the Office of Management and Budget if the governor would veto the education funding in the current 2020 budget, which appropriates education funding for 2021 — but not for 2020.
