Bills try to provide supplemental funds

The vote was 93-0. The measure includes $1.5 million for the Academic Achievement Awards program.

The House also passed a measure, 97-2, to give $3.1 million to the Corporation Commission in part to supplement delayed federal funding.

The public schools funding is to make up a shortfall in the House Bill 1017 account, which is funded mostly by income tax collections.

House Appropriation and Budget Committee Chairman Ken Miller, R-Edmond, said budget leaders will continue to watch collections into the HB 1017 fund through April to get a more definite idea on how much more money schools will need for the rest of the fiscal year.

The bills approved in the House go to the Senate before going to the governor for his signature.
