Missouri Governor Signs Supplemental Budget

Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed House Bill 15, the second supplemental budget bill for the 2023 Fiscal year, into law. The bill appropriates more than $2 billion to ensure state government operations continue uninterrupted through the end of the current fiscal year, which ends on June 30th.

HB 15 appropriates critical funding for K-12 education, higher education, public safety, mental health, and transportation, among others. The bill includes $217 million for school nutrition programs, $75 million for state aid to charter schools, $800,000 for the Fast Track Workforce Incentive Grant Program, $3 million for career and technical education programs in K-12 schools, and $175,000 for the Missouri Blue Scholarship

The more than $2 billion package includes $427 million in general revenue, $1.45 billion in federal funds, and $176 million in other funds.

Governor Parson issued one line item veto in HB 15 for $25,000 to the Missouri Department of Transportation for audit costs. The line item was not recommended as an emergency appropriation by Governor Parson, therefore, does not align with the Constitutional requirements of a supplemental appropriation bill. Funding for the same audit program is included in the Fiscal Year 2024 budget.
