Senate’s $36.3b budget mirrors Mass. House plan

Despite an improving economy and forecasts of increased tax collections, state Senate leaders unveiled a cautious, $36.3 billion budget Wednesday that is propped up by $250 million in one-time revenues.

Those revenues include $140 million from the state’s main reserve account, the rainy day fund, which was designed for use only in budgetary emergencies. The budget would also use $53 million from the anticipated sale of a casino license and $46 million from delaying certain corporate tax deductions.
