Senate Deliberates on Budget

The budget bill is now before the State Senate. Senate Democrats and Republicans have been meeting in caucus today to discuss changes to the state budget bill. Press reports indicate that there is opposition from some members of the majority Senate Democrats relating to the tax on oil and reversing common-sense tort reforms. Senate Republicans await word on the Democratic proposal. The Senate is scheduled to be in session to vote on the budget bill Wednesday.
