A minor bill to make technical corrections to the budget has caused a rift between Senate and House Republican leadership. The Senate President says the House’s actions yesterday will cost taxpayers several million dollars.
On Wednesday House lawmakers approved a bill that reduces the number of people of eligible for welfare assistance.
The change would save the state about a half a million dollars a month.
The Senate was on board with that move.
But then the House added a completely unrelated amendment, which puts the bill in limbo.
