The State Senate passed an $8.1 billion budget on Monday, sending the fiscal spending plan on to Governor Chafee for signature. Passed by the House after its own marathon session ended at 3:37 a.m. last Friday, the budget includes increased spending for education to local schools in excess of $30 million as well as a boost for the developmentally disable--both areas effected by prior cuts.
