In the budget plan it approved Sunday, the state House Appropriations Committee did not include the funds either. But the full House voted Thursday to restore $24 million of that money.

The Senate Finance Committee had agreed to restore $42 million. But that chamber, evenly split between Republicans and Democrats, failed to pass its budget Thursday.
