Budget Breakthrough

Posted By on Fri, Jun 15, 2007 at 10:41 AM

While state lawmakers have gone home for the weekend, leadership may have finally made a budget deal.

We're told that House Speaker Jim Weiers, who had tried to push through $60 million in tax cuts in the House budget plan, is settling for about $3 million. If that's the case: What a victory! I'm sure the members of his caucus are happy they stuck around for the last month while that was carved out.

Lawmakers will have a chance to approve the package when they get back to work next week.
