HB2099 - state budget; estimates; notice. Senate Appropriations 03/06/2018 Leach – Was never intended as a limit on government spending. As introduced, it only required government to inform the public if spending went over a level based on growth and inflation. As amended, it fails to do that because it has 17 undefined “emergency” exceptions, which can hide a lot of extra spending. Still a nice feel good bill and a decent starting point
