STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, JULY 17, 2015….Gov. Charlie Baker on Friday signed a fiscal 2016 budget that both sets state government out on a path to accomplish scores of new directives while turning back to the Legislature for further consideration the governor’s budget vetoes, amendments and a new mini-budget to address fiscal 2015 accounts. Baker slashed $162 million from the budget with his veto pen, including $38 million in spending earmarks authored by lawmakers. The budget contains no new taxes, Baker said, while limiting spending growth to 3 percent, assuming an income tax cut on Jan. 1, and increasing spending on transportation and local aid. It uses $600 million in one-time solutions but for the first time in four cycles does not draw from the state’s rainy day fund, which state officials are trying to build back up after years of withdrawals. Baker on Friday also signed off on a budget rider creating an MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board, which will meet on Tuesday. Baker named Meridiam Infrastructure partner Joe Aiello to chair the new board and appointed Lisa Calise, Brian Lang, Steve Poftak and Monica Tibbits-Nutt to the board. It appears the House will take its time reviewing Baker’s budget moves before acting – the next formal sessions in the House are planned on July 29 and July 30. The only formal session planned next week is Thursday in the Senate. — The weeks ahead will likely bring more initiative petition campaigns out into public view. Campaigns are already taking shape around the issues of charter schools, Common Core education standards, hosting the 2024 summer Olympics, and legalizing marijuana. Petition hopefuls face an Aug. 5 deadline to file language and a list of initial sponsors with the attorney general.
