* Budget bills and feedback sessions move ahead

While the first set of deadlines have come and gone in Olympia on the way toward a state budget for next two years, discussions are continuing on how Shoreline will cope with whatever the outcome.

For bills to continue the legislative process, they needed to be passed out of policy committees by Feb. 23. Those that did move on are now in fiscal committees where they face more deadlines on March 7 and 10 to move out and over to the other chamber. Of course, as with all things political, there are exceptions; budget bills and other important funding-related bills are exempt. For more information about which bills moved and which bills didn’t, see the weekly legislative report from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.

At Shoreline, on the same day Olympia was facing the first legislation deadline, the first in a series of sessions to gain feedback on preliminary recommendations for budget reductions was occurring. The brown-bag lunch in Room 1102 brought good questions and interaction, said Vice President for Administrative Services Daryl Campbell.

Today, March 1, a review and discussion of the preliminary recommendations is on the agenda for College Council, 2-4 p.m., in the Board Room. On Wednesday, March 2, the Strategic Planning and Budget Committee is scheduled to discuss the preliminary recommendations. On Thursday, March 3, an afternoon feedback session open to all is scheduled for 3:30-4:30 p.m., in the PUB Quiet Dining Room. See the feedback events calendar for currently scheduled opportunities.
