Rushed process results in mistakes and budget chaos

Wondering why your lawmakers had to resume legislative session this week after adjourning two weeks ago?

Here’s a window into the chaos. When you rush important legislation through at the last minute, with no transparency or accountability, you make mistakes–like passing the wrong year’s budget.

Yes, that’s right! Democrats were so quick to pass a budget in the dead of night on the final day of session, that they accidentally passed a budget that couldn’t be spent until June 2022.

This careless mistake forced the Governor to use an amendatory veto to fix their drafting errors.
