CCSA Answers: Application of Proposed Budget Trigger

October 6, 2011

Question: Does the proposed budget trigger apply to the 2011-12 fiscal year only, or will its cuts and flexibilities carry over into other years?

Answer: The budget trigger is specific to the 2011-12 fiscal year. This means that the trigger cuts and flexibilities, including instructional day minimums, will only apply to the current fiscal year, should the budget trigger be implemented. Continued state financial difficulties may, however, bring additional cuts and flexibilities in upcoming budget legislation.
