FY2009 Budget In the Offing
Senators were at the capitol late into the evening trying to garner support for a deal backed primarily by House Republicans. Even former Senate President and newly-minted Secretary of State KenBennett was spotted in the building trying to move things along. Whatever he was doing, it worked. Bills (make sure you select 49th Legislature, 1st Special Session) have been printed and distributed, and House and Senate Appropriations committees have been scheduled for this afternoon. Senate Democrats are working to analyze the bills and will provide more detail as it becomes available.
