On Tuesday, the Senate Committee on Ways and Means announced a $38.01 billion budget for Fiscal Year 2016.

“These budget line items are more than just numbers,” said Senate Committee on Ways and Means Chair Karen Spilka. “They reflect shared Senate values and our commitment to foster upward economic mobility and greater equality for all residents. Our goal is to lift all families and lay the foundation for shared prosperity.”
