JEFFERSON CITY — The House has approved almost $80 million in extra funding for school districts, health care and other state programs.
The money is to cover costs not included in the state’s $21.5 billion budget approved last year by legislators.
About one-third of the additional money, about $29 million, would be distributed to school districts.
The supplemental money was approved 151-1 and will go on to the Senate.
Lawmakers already have approved several other supplemental spending bills.
A bill that allows an additional $17 million in spending was given final approval Monday by the House and was sent to the governor. It includes money for repairs to the state Capitol and emergency generators at veterans’ homes.
