State Budget Update: Speed Bumps at the Capitol

Posted By on Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 2:58 PM

Here's what we're hearing from the Capitol:

Republican leadership would like to get the slash-and-burn budget through as quickly as possible and had hoped to the get the bills that passed both Senate and House appropriations committees yesterday through the chambers today.

But they've hit some snags in the Senate, which has already abandoned plans to vote on the package today. The House, meanwhile, is scheduled to start debating the bills at 3:30 today, but that plan could change if the votes don't materialize.

One major holdup revolves around putting the financial responsibility for incarcerating juvenile-justice inmates on the counties. That's running into big resistance, especially from the rural counties.

More to come.
